Highlights

 
     
    This 3-day hut to hut ski touring trip takes place in a wild area, above Les Contamines Montjoie.

    We’ll have the pleasure to see breathtaking views of the South-West side of Mont-Blanc. If the conditions allow us, we will ski up and down Les Dômes de Miage!

    This ski tour is ideal if you come in the area of Saint Gervais and Les Contamines Montjoie (Haute Savoie) between March and May. You’ll have the chance to live a unique mountain experience, far from the crowd.

    Going with a local is a great opportunity for you to learn about Val Montjoie and it the specificities of this region I like so much.  

    The start of the tour takes place in the ski resort of Les Contamines. The 2 nights will be spent in mountain huts, at Refuge de Tré la Tête first and then Les Conscrits. The breakfasts and diners are taken in the refuges, the lunches, in the mountains.

    You must have a good ski (with ski touring experience) and fitness level to go on this ski tour. You will go through some technical passes and peaks. Keep in mind you will be skiing in the backcountry and this implies some risks.

    You’ll find below the program and the ski itinerary. These might be modified  based on the snow and weather conditions, as well as your ski level. The safety of the group remains the top priority. Therefore, I will only take 2 skiers with me. If you come with a larger group, several IFMGA guides will join us.

    Please send me a request if you wish to hire me to go on this ski touring adventure.
