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.
