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.

  • Day 1 : Bric Cassin and night at Viviere Rifugio
  • Day 2 : Colletto and ski descent down to Chiappera. Night at ‘la Scuola di Chiappera’
  • Day 3 : Col Sautron (Sautron Pass) and descent to Larche
  • Day 4 : Col des Monges (Monges Pass) and ski down to Acceglio

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.

Do you find this trip interesting? Then please contact me! I would love being your guide in this wild and beautiful region. Or if you are looking for a more classic destination, I can also take you ski touring around Gran Paradiso.


In mountain huts and traditional mountain hostels.
