Thanks to this big variety of terrains, this area can offer ski touring itineraries answering the expectations all kind of ski touring lovers.

Ski level requirements

This program is suitable to a very wide range of ability; it’s also a good possibility for beginner to approach this nice activity! Anyway what we suggest you is to have already a good level in off-piste skiing and possibly a small previous experience in ski touring. Plus we ask you to be in a good shape and able to walk and ski for a minimum of 4-5 hours effort with a light back pack.

Not included in the price

Renting equipment, lunch, drinks, lift tickets and any transfer if necessary.

Snow conditions

Generous snowfalls are virtually assured thanks to the position over the main ridge of the Alps; it makes no difference if clouds come from south and they bump against the main ridge of the Alps or they come from the north and they go across the ridge… in both case it is sure that snow falls in Devero.

Accommodation

Our favourite place in Devero is Casa Fontana (http://goo.gl/9N8WQy). This is an old house, very well restored with a particular attention even to the small details. Depending on their availability at the time of booking our first choice will be that place. But in Devero there are few others places that can pretty well substitute it!
