Highlights

 
     

    In the southwest of Piedmont we find the beautiful Val Maira (Maira Valley), a must destination if you are into ski touring. During this trip we will combine adventure and comfort.

    Each morning we choose a different area to explore: a new pass, another summit. We will decide the best spots considering the sun and snow on each day.

    Each afternoon, after an adventurous ski touring day, we return to our comfortable accommodation. There we will talk about the day’s adventures while having a drink. For example, we can taste some of the wonderful wines from the wonderful cellar of our host. You shouldn’t come if you are in a diet!

    If you want to enjoy great ski and warm evenings in good company, then this program in Val Maira is perfect for you.

    The highlights of this trip include:
    – Over 300 different ski touring itineraries in the valley
    – A comfortable accommodation and good food
    – Easy access by TGV and transfer
    – Great logistics

    I was disappointed. I was slower than the rest of the group reaching Tete Rousse, and the guide discouraged me from going to Gouter. I had a slight ankle sprain the day before which slowed my ascent. I recovered 95% the day after. My complaint: when I decided to go for a second guided attempt, at a slower pace, I received no help in securing a guide, or a reservation at Gouter. The online reservation showed fully booked both for Rousse and Gouter. But I know that there were lots of empty bunks at Rousse, and I suspect the same at Gouter. I received sympathy, but only as a formality. Initially I had sought a single dedicated guide, but I was encouraged to join a group. I did not get a choice.I should have known better, I knew my pace would be a bit slower, but I counted on your support and understanding. I got neither. I was on my own with no help.
