Discover through this 4-day ski tour, the Maira valley (Val Maira) with Andrea, an IFMGA certified mountain guide. This wild and remote Italian destination is a hidden gem for ski touring lovers.
Join me in this 4-day ski touring trip in the beautiful Maira valley (Val Maira), south-west of Piedmont!
The Maira valley is a wild and remote location, stretching across Italy and France. Throughout the area there are many isolated traditional and charming villages. We will go to the summits that surround them to enjoy an incredible ski touring playground.
A great advantage is that this is a very wild valley where we will only find ski alpinists during the winter and spring. I just love these kind of environments, very well preserved ! No mass tourism! Besides, we will be staying in Italian refuges (Rifugio) with their characteristic warm feeling. Their hospitality as well as good food are memorable!
Some of the passes we’ll reach include Sautron and Monges. You’ll find my 4-day itinerary below.
I might have to adapt the itinerary and program based on the snow and weather conditions as well as based on your ski touring and fitness level.

I\'ve spent 5 days with a group of friends in Valle Maira accompanied by Andrea, our guide for the trip. He is young , cheerful, flexible, very good at card games and has an excellent knowledge of the region. It was my first time skiing in Italy and I\'ve been seduced by the authenticity of the mountain villages, the amazing sceneries and the local gastronomy : you get both quality and quantity at a very decent price! If you are looking for quiet moments away from the crowd this is definitely the right place to go as this region is far less touristy than Valle Aosta.
The five of us explored Valle Maira with our guide Andrea during four days, which was a truly refreshing experience because the area is so wild. There\'s no ski resorts around, only isolated stone villages inhabited by a couple of die-hards living away from it all, and beautiful treks all around. Great scenery. We didn\'t see more than 10 fellow skiers around. The food is great too, and there\'s plenty of it. We also went to France for one day. As to Andrea, whom i knew from a previous trek, he was flexible and careful as always. A great experience!
With 5 friends (all aged ~35) , we decided to go on a 5 day hut-to-hut ski trip in Piedmont - Italy. Not only was the place very typical & beautiful, it is also a great way to spend some time “among men”, off the families and the heaps of daily hassle that go along with it. And also good to do some tougher challenges you could never do when going on a family trip. Andrea led us to some very unique places, the “rifugio” in Italy are divine, you are always welcomed with great attention and also great food. Expect the 6 meal dish even in a hut! An experience I will reiterate, if possible on a yearly basis, to empty my head and refresh my mind.
