Description

Come enjoy the magnificent slopes of the Pays des Escrins! If you are dreaming of making turns in the most perfect powder, this 4-day ski touring program in Puy Saint Vincent and Pelvoux is the trip for you!

You won't believe the powder snow you'll find here. The lack of wind in this area creates the most perfect snow conditions! "Powder alerts" happen almost daily in Puy Saint Vincent and Pelvoux.

This area is at the heart of my activity and I'll be happy to show you around. You need to be a solid skier and, additionally, have a very good fitness level to participate in this 4-day ski touring program.

First, we will meet at Argentière la Bessée and spend three days skiing the backcountry terrain of Puy Saint Vincent. The fourth day will be spent at the small (but amazing) ski resort of Pelvoux!

If you'll be visiting the area during the winter and would like to check out some of my other programs, take a look at my ice climbing course in the Hautes Alpes.

So contact me to find out more about this beautiful ski trip. It will be a pleasure for me to take you skiing to some of the best powder in the Alps!
