    In the heart of the French Alps lies the 3 Vallées ski area, one of the best and biggest ski resorts in the world. And within these 3 valleys, Orelle is the easiest one to access. Join me, on this ski touring day to explore Orelle, and all the beauty that surrounds it.

    Orelle is a small, rural town located in the center of La Maurienne. It is just 2 hours away from the airport in Lyon and one hour from Chambery, making it incredibly accessible. And, at 900 meters of height, this town offers unparalleled conditions for skiing.  

    The endless options available make Orelle a true skiing paradise. Also, you have the advantage that other resorts are more popular. Therefore, with less people, you’ll get to ski around like if the mountain was just for you.

    One of the tallest summits we can conquer is Plan du Bouchet (3,220 meters). We also have the option to ski across the Sommet des Pistes (3,230 meters). Or we can ski to the Brèche de Rosaël (3,000 meters)

    If you are an expert skier I’ll make sure to take you to the spots that will challenge your skills and offer the maximum amount of thrill and fun. And if you are a beginner, we’ll explore areas that will help you gain confidence and that you can enjoy. 

    Additionally, one of my main goals is to make sure you are safe the whole time. Hence, we’ll follow all regulations to ensure your safety.

    So if you want to climb up to some of the most stunning peaks, and have access to the best ski slopes in the world, without massive crowds around you, this trip is perfect for you. Send me a request and I’ll make sure you have an amazing time in the French Alps.

    Also, if you want to explore a bigger ski resort, I recommend you this Val Thorens guided freeride skiing trip

    What People are Saying about Up Ski & Mountain Guides

     

    Bonjour Pauline et Fred, Je suis très heureux de prendre un moment aujourd’hui pour vous écrire. Le séjour au Finnmark été exceptionnel. Clément est un excellent guide. Très dévoué, soucieux de rendre l’expérience agréable, Clément est vraiment très talentueux et dévoué. Sa personnalité est agréable, il est à l’écoute de nos besoins et démontre, malgré son jeune âge, un haut niveau de compétences et de savoir-faire. Son enseignement sur recherche de victimes suite à une avalanche est de loin, la meilleure formation que j’ai reçue à ce jour. Les paysages du Finnmark sont exceptionnels, nous avons été particulièrement chanceux pour les conditions météorologiques. Nous avons vraiment eu le loisir d’admirer ces magnifiques paysages de montagnes entre ciel et mer. L’expérience de groupe a aussi été excellente, la chimie entre les participants-es a été fort agréable. Nous avons vraiment passé de bons moments ensemble.  Je vais très certainement voyager avec vous dans le futur, l’expérience a été extrêmement positive. Au plaisir de nouvelles aventures !!! Serge

    Whow! Amazing trip in Finnmark, our guide Sylvain made the trip perfect, looking every day for the best snow conditions and beautiful itineraries! Arriving on ski after a crazy descent in powder to the water in lonesome fjords and getting home by boat as well as kayaking to the start of itinerary on a perfect sunny day are unbeatable! Sauna after a powder day, dog sledging and watching northern lights in the night make the trip even more unforgettable!

    Ski touring in Finnmark was a wonderful experience with Explore and Share. On arriving, the Northern Lights set the stage for a week rich in adventures and explorations. Stunning decor of never ending fjords and beautiful snow conditions allowed us to ski up the mountains, reach summits, and slalom downhill in the most remote and peaceful places in Norway. The guides made sure we had a chance to be exposed to a variety of skiing domains, with changing landscapes and views. This meant we kayaked across a fjord in order to reach the start of the ski tour, and returned to have a brief swim in cold but pure water. Meeting at the restaurant-caffe place in the evening for dinner was a treat. The food was great and the warmth of the wooden built house typical of a skiing adventure trip. Seb& Charlotte
