Would you like to explore the Maritime Alps while you enjoy ski touring? Then come with me on this 5-day roundtrip in the Maira Valley!

First of all, we’ll meet in the Turin Airport and transfer you on a 2.30-hour drive to the village of Chippera, in the municipality of Acceglio, in the province of Cuneo. Then, we’ll have a brief to check the equipment and talk about the correct use of artva.

On the second day, we’ll explore Bric Cassin and go to the Refuge Viviere, where we’ll have the chance to enjoy a nice swimming pool. Then, the third day will be the turn of the Auto Vallonasso summit and we’ll descend to Sorgenti del Maira, a beautiful natural spot at the foot of the mountain. On day four, we’ll enjoy ski touring and descend to the village of Lausetto. Finally, on the fifth day, we’ll reach Rocca La Meja and we’ll transfer you to Turin Airport.

As for the requirements, it doesn’t matter if you don’t have plenty of experience, this program is suitable both for beginners and advanced participants. In any case, it’s important to have a good level of fitness.

We were very satisfied with the whole experience. Our guide Matteo was very experienced and taught us a lot during the short trip. He looked after us and made sure that we felt secure even on the most dangerous stages of the ascent and descent. I cannot express enough how happy we were with Matteo\'s support and guidance. He was very professional during the whole trip and also very jovial and kept us a good company. His knowledge of the mountains and mountaineering is exceptional and I wouldn\'t hesitate to recommend him to anyone wishing to climb in the Alps.

We were a bit unlucky with the weather, so we didn\'t summit. But given the conditions, I think we did the best we could, we\'ve scaled some smaller peaks and practiced our spline skills. Matteo is great guide, highly recommend.
