Join me for a wonderful ski touring trip in the high valleys of the Mercantour National Park.

This is a 5-day ski trip, which takes place between the Vésubie and the high valleys of Argentera, on the Italian side.

We start from the Boréon village at the end of the road and we head to Mont Clapier (3045 m). Then, we go to Mont Gelas (3148 m), right on the border between France and Italy.

Near the Gulf of Genoa, snow is often abundant in winter. Besides, days are usually sunny.

Inside the national park, the atmosphere is wild and the best places are rarely visited. But don’t worry: wolfs are away from these territories.

This is a beautiful ski tour, far away from the popular ski trails. In addition, it offers some amazing views of the French and Italian borders!

We can adapt this program depending on the time you have and your wishes. It may also change due to weather or snow conditions at the moment of the trip.

I invite you to contact me if you are interested in visiting this amazing park and experiencing incredible ski tours for a few days. It will be a pleasure for me to guide you and discover with you each secret corner.

About the Guide


Hi! My name is Fabien Artero, I have been a mountain leader since 2008 and mountain guide since 2014. I discovered my passion for the mountains by spending time during my youth at the Valle Argentina in Italy, in the Ligurian Alps.

I slowly discovered activities that allowed me to travel the valley along the seasons...

The mountain is a large playground. We have to play according to its mood, mountain conditions, weather and finally choose the itinerary... Which renders these activities complex and exciting.

These activities allow us to discover the valleys, massifs, the countries and people living in them. Altogether is makes for an enriching mixture from any point of view.

I wanted this to become my profession because, of the mountains, human contact and the practice of exciting activities.
