Join me for an outstanding week of ski touring, at Alta Val Pellice in the Piedmont region of Italy.
Our base camp will be the Willy Jervis refuge, built on a plateau in the heart of a fantastic place. I is one hour and a half away from civilization.
We will leave the refuge every morning looking for the best conditions, the most beautiful snow and the most interesting slopes depending on your ski level and your interests.
This trip across the Alta Val Pellice is designed for beginners as well as for experimented skiers. There is something for each taste. Indeed, from gentle slopes to committed corridors, little passages, and summits over 3000 m.
We will pass through a region known for some places such as the Lacroix pass, Pra Roussin, Urine pass, Mait d’Amunt, Sellier pass, Manzol pass, Meidassa, Barant pass, etc.
I especially like this place (where I lived for several years) because:
- The welcome is exceptional and the food is excellent (italian);
- The team workers of the place are always available for what we need and to make our stay unforgettable;
- The refuge is comfortable, heated, super clean bathrooms. It has a large south facing terrace, perfect for a beer in the sun after a sportive day;
- The environment is very wild and there are not too many people;
- There are many options of ski touring, for all levels and desires;
- Roberto (Roby), the boss for the last 30 years and a mountain guide, is always there to create a cheerful and friendly atmosphere.
Does this adventure in Alta Val Pellice sound interesting? Then I invite you to contact me! I will be happy to answer your questions and give you more information. If we leave together, I promise you that you will discover this fantastic region from one of the best refuges in Europe.
