I’m organizing this one-day ski tour to Mait d’Aimunt for experienced and fit skiers who want to spend an amazing time in one of the wildest area of the Queyras valley.

Mait d’Aimunt (2804 m) is located at the border of France and Italy, at the end of the Queyras mountain range. I enjoy very much guiding my friends and clients there because…

  • This ski itinerary is very wild and deserted from the other skiers due to its location and its level of difficulty (1200 meters of positive gain in one day);

  • The snow is very often of high quality because of the location of the area being covered of powder by the winds coming from the East;

  • The landscape is breathtaking. When reaching the summit of Mait d’Aimunt, you’ll enjoy on one side the view on Mount Viso and its alpine environment and on the other side, the Pô Plain.

I’m organizing many different programs and itineraries for 1-day ski tours in the Queyras valley. This one is dedicated to advanced skiers having a good level of fitness. In some parts, we will ski down slopes of more than 35°.

In order to maximize the safety, we will go there only if the snow conditions are stable. If they are not, we will choose from the several other ski touring itineraries that the area offers.

Doing this one-day ski tour can be a very good option for the ones doing a ski week in the resorts of the region such as Abriès, Saint-Véran, Ceillac, Arvieux, Risoul, Vars… Get out of the crowd for one day and connect with deep wild nature !

If you are interested to come with me for the Mait d’Aimunt ski tour or any other in the Queyras, for one or several days, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me. We can discuss about your wishes, your ski level and the different options we have to spend an unique time here together.

It will be a great pleasure for me to guide you in this valley that I know very well and share with you my passion and experience as a local guide.  


More info

I can provide you with part of the safety equipment. If you need to rent some gears I recommend you to do it in Guillestre. I can help you with that if you need advices.

Meeting point

We can meet in Guillestre and drive together from there or meet directly at our starting point : Le Roux d'Abriès.


About the guide

I'm a fully certified IFMGA mountain guide from Les Hautes Alpes. I'm based very close to the National Park of Queyras.
I was born in a farm in Haute Savoie. I grew up with cows and when I was 1 1/2 years old, I climbed my first mountain...Nooo, I'm just kidding !
I come from Paris and I actually started sailing before mountaineering. I studied in a business school and I realized few years later that actually, my passion was not to sit behind a computer all day but to guide friends and clients in the mountains.
I now live in Les Hautes Alpes and I'll be happy to bring you up there and let you live an unique time. So please contact me and let's start planning a mountain trip you would like to do, during the winter or the summer, for 1/2 or several days !
