Description

The Pierra Menta race in the Alps of France is one of the most famous ski mountaineering races in the world.  And during this 2 day trip, I would like to introduce you to this incredible event. Thus allowing you to see how amazing it is, while enjoying the skiing area as well!

The area where the Pierra Menta race takes place is gorgeous. Surrounded by the majestic French Alps, and situated at Areches – Beaufort in the Beaufort area of Savoie, don’t be surprised if you catch yourself just standing around, admiring not only the race itself, but the scenery as well.

The trip will begin at 8:00 am. After we meet at Areches – Beaufort, we will then make our way to one of the Pierra Menta race’s stages. We will be at an altitude of approximately 1500 to 2000 metres. We will then enjoy a delicious picnic, where you can still admire the surroundings. In the evening, we will enjoy a wonderful dinner, before settling in for the night in a B & B in Villars sur Doron.

On the second day of the trip, we will start early and make our way from the hamlet of Planay to the Forclaz Pass and Grand Mont during the final leg of the race. We will then enjoy another picnic before the conclusion of the trip.

For anybody that wants to witness a spectacular sporting event in a truly beautiful place, this 2 day trip at the Pierra Menta race is for you. So send me a request, and join me on this ski touring expedition that will allow you to see something you yourself might participate in one day!

I also offer this 4 day cross country skiing trip in Les Saises.

A certified guide from my team will be in charge of guiding this ski touring itinerary.

What people are saying about -Caroline

J'ai eu l'opportunité de participer à deux stages, l'un dans le Cantal, l'autre à Chamonix. Un grand plaisir de partager une passion commune avec des participants très sympas de tous niveaux et de tous horizons. Caroline, une grande professionnelle de la montagne et du trail, n'a pas son pareil pour organiser ces rencontres, et tout cela dans une super ambiance et des paysages à couper le souffle.

J'ai fait deux stages avec Caro, c'est devenu une amie, et chacun de ces stages m'a laissé des souvenirs inoubliables. Le premier stage en 2014 en Haute Savoie à l'occasion du Trail du Gypaète. Le Deuxième stage en 2015, dans les Calanques de Marseille. Ces stages auront été parfaits à tous les niveaux: Paysages grandioses (on sent qu'ils ont été choisis avec soin), des échanges techniques avec des "pros" (un grand moment quand Caro inspecte les sacs à dos...), pleins de conseils nutrition - mode de vie etc... La découverte des autres stagiaires mais aussi des autres encadrants (très bon contact avec Guillaume Lenormand par ex.). Des conditions matérielles top (hébergement, repas, organisation etc...). Seule critique: le temps passe trop vite, c'est toujours trop court! Donc au final quand c'est fini, on n'a qu'une envie... c'est de repartir pour un autre stage! Et vu le nombre de personnes que l'on croise sur les stages qui en sont à leur n-ième participation, je peux affirmer que ce sentiment est partagé!

Pour moi le trail c'est avant tout la découverte de nouveaux territoires, les rencontres et les échanges avec d'autres passionnés, le respect de la nature. Mes 3 stages avec Caroline m'ont permis de retrouver ces fondamentaux dans un cadre toujours bon enfant, mais pas moins professionnel. Caroline est une passionnée de montagne et de tout ce qui y touche (sport, culture, gastronomie) et elle sait comme personne transmettre sa passion et ses bons conseils, toujours avec le sourire. Je garde un excellent souvenir des rencontres avec les autres stagiaires et mais aussi avec les autres encadrants, Guillaume, Seb, Cédric, Lydie et tant d'autres rencontrés au cours de ces stages.

Great experience, but definitely favored toward elite runners. One of our guides, JC, was amazing. He cared about every runner. The other guide seemed only to care for the elites (and himself). On top of Col des Montets, I asked if we had time to put on warm layers. The guide said "of course," but then quickly proceeded to run off with the entire group while I stood bare and freezing with my gear unpacked. Total lack of consideration for the well-being of his runners. Otherwise a great tour.
