If you want to experience some unique skiing I think this guided freeride ski day in Maurienne is just for you.
You will have unforgettable days skiing “a la carte” through the best spots of Maurienne. During this trip, I will take you on wonderful and wild off-piste sceneries with breathtaking descents. As a local guide I know all these places very well.
Besides that, let me tell you that Orelle and Val Thorens are spectacular places in Maurienne to ski. At 2.300 meters high, it has one of the longest ski seasons. Moreover, it is situated at the head of three Valleys (Saint-Bon, Allues and Belleville) forming the largest ski area in the world. In fact, Val Thorens is the world´s biggest skiing area with 600 km of slopes to suit all levels. There are many options there for freeride skiers.
You’ll also have the chance to enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the Alps with a panoramic landscape of more than 1.000 Alpine peaks of France, Italy and Switzerland.
Based on your wishes, the weather and snow conditions, the time you have here, I’ll decide with you a ski program. Put your trust on me and let yourself be surprised.
You’ll find here below an example of freeride ski day program I’m organizing for my friends and clients.
We will meet at 8:00 am in the place where you’ll get your safety equipment (electronic avalanche beacon, a shovel, a probe and a helmet). You will also receive a special backpack where you will be able to carry your skis comfortably. At 9:00 am we will take the Orelle´s cable car. Once at the summit we will decide about the best itinerary. As I said, it will depend on your skills and general weather conditions. By 12:00 we will have lunch. You can choose between a restaurant or an outdoor picnic. After lunch, we will pursue our program and go for the best skiing in the Maurienne Valley!
Feel free to contact me if you plan to come in Haute Maurienne. It will be a pleasure for me to guide you and let you discover all the best and secret freeride ski spots of the area. We can leave together for one or several days. If you fancy some ski touring, this will also be a good option.
