I invite you to discover ski touring in the heart of the high valley of Maurienne and the Vanoise National Park. During this weekend trip, we will go to a protected and magnificent mountain environment. The idea is to learn while having a great time. Indeed, it will be an easy, relaxing, and friendly weekend. Besides, we will sleep in a beautiful refuge in the middle of the mountain, connecting with nature.

Some of the highlights of this trip are the following:
– an easy ski touring trip designed for beginners
– a sunny massif
– advice from a mountain guide to improve your skills fast
