Ubaye is a region definitely worth of a visit in the French Alps. Located between Mercantour, Queyras and Val Maïra, this site will provide the ground for great adventures!
It’s in fact a wild region, and the landscapes are breathtaking. The Chambeyron is the main massif, with beautiful rocks and large slopes. But the terrain is much more varied than that!
A unique stay far from the crowded ski resorts, but with a warm welcome and delicious food. Indeed, ski touring in Ubaye means loving adventures. You will often feel like you are one of the first people to explore this land. Besides, the region is quite sunny, making our days even more enjoyable.

Tête de Fer
Today we go to the Tête de Fer (2883 m). It takes some effort, but the descent and the beauty of the site are certainly worth it. It’s one of the most beautiful hikes in the Haute Ubaye.
From the Larche pass we go to the Feuillas pass (2800 m). We go up the beautiful and strange Orrennaye valley, between Tête Moïse, Tête de Vauclave and Mont Scaletta.
Our objective is the Couletta pass (2752 m). Leaving from Fouillouse (1907 m), we are in the heart of the magnificent cirque du Brec de Chambeyron, with an original and varied descent.
Tour de l'Aiguille Pierre André
We leave for the Tour de l’Aiguille Pierre André (2850 m). It’s a marvellous ski touring day. Overnight at Maljasset.
The last destination is the beautiful Pointe Mary (3126 m). The way up there is very enjoyable, and the descent is truly unique.
