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.
