Ski touring in Vanoise, Roc de la Pêche

2+ days of guided ski touring in the National Park of la Vanoise, based in the lovely Roc de la Pêche mountain hut, together with Sebastien, IFMGA mountain guide.

Not specified

Alps

2 Days

Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr


Description

The Refuge du Roc de la Pêche is a charming hut in the middle of the National Park of la Vanoise, the 1st French national park. It is located between La Tarentaise and La Maurienne in the Alps. It is the dream spot for ski touring enthusiasts, beginners or experts. 

The idea is to be based in le Refuge du Roc de la Pêche and go every day discovering a new area of the park. We will take our lunch (picnic) in the mountains and come back every afternoon at the refuge to enjoy a good rest, a nice meal…

Here are some of the routes we might ski together:
– Roc du Blanchon (2747 m), 836 m of vertical gain, 5:00 (go and back)
– Col d’Aussois(2916 m), 1005 m of vertical gain, 5:30 (go and back)
– Col du Génépi (2903 m), 992 m. of vertical gain, 5:30 (go and back)
– Col rouge (2731 m), 820 m. of vertical gain, 4:30 (go and back)
– Passage de Rosoire (3479 m), 1568 m of vertical gain, 7:00 (go and back)
– Dôme ou Aiguille de Polset (3326 m or 3501 m), 1415 m or 1590 m. of vertical gain, 9:00 (go and back)

It’s a very good option when the weather conditions are uncertain as it gives us the flexibility in terms of itinerary. Each day, we go where the conditions (weather, snow and wind) are the best.

The place is beautiful, the refuge very confortable (confortable beds, showers, jacuzzi and hammam…) and the host very welcoming.

It is suitable for all levels of ski tourers, beginners as more experienced.

Please get in touch with me if you wish to live a nice ski touring experience in a beautiful remote place for 2 or more days.

I had a great time climbing with Sebastien. He modified the trip because of the weather and was able to find dry rock on a wet day. Throughout the trip Sebastien not only provided plenty of climbing but also helped me on skills that I wanted to improve on.

It was my first ski touring experience in high montainous areas: it was just unique thanks notably to the way Sébastien managed us in a very professional way. He inspired confidence in our group while this was the very first time for three among us. Congrats.

Nous avons passé trois jours entre Chamonix et La Clusaz, quelques classiques dans les aiguilles rouges et une belle journée au début du massif des Aravis. Nous avons particulièrement apprecié Sébastien pour ces choix en rapport avec notre niveau, sa patience, sa pédagogie juste quand il faut, pro et sympathique,de très bons moments en montagne, sportifs et conviviaux.

Thanks a lot Sebastien for helping us in getting ready to ascent the Mont Blanc and for letting us discover the incredible Vallée Blanche. It has been an unique experience that we will probably never forget. I hope we can climb an other mountain soon together. Take care. Gauthier

Sébastien taught us all the bases of glacier climbing. We spent nice days with him in the Vallée Blanche and Mont-Blanc area. He was very patient and pedagogue. Thanks to him we could discover great little summit close to Aiguille du Midi!
