Description

Let one of our highly trained guides take you on this Ski mountaineering tour in Valpelline to enjoy a wonderful 5-day adventure in the Alps. 

Valpelline is an amazing ski region in the north-western region of Italy, right in the border with Switzerland. It’s located in the area of Aosta Valley, one of the most impressive places to practice backcountry skiing in Europe.

This 5-day adventure will start in the town of Valpelline. We’ll have dinner and spend the night at Prarayer refuge. The next day we’ll start our journey through the mountains.

We’ll first go to Chateau des Dames (3488 m). Then we’ll traverse to the second spot where we’ll overnight, the Aosta Refuge. From there we’ll climb to different peaks.

This adventure will let you admire the Alps from beautiful perspectives, plus we’ll ski some amazing powder snow.

If you are interested in this fantastic 5-day ski touring adventure, please send me  request to book it and let’s plan our trip together! And if you don’t have so many days to enjoy this trip, let me know because I can adapt  it based on the time you have.
