Initiation day Initiation day

INTRODUCTION

Discover the mountains off the beaten trail, no pistes, no limits, amid the majestic surroundings with numerous possibilities.
 
Ski touring is synonymous of freedom, no piste to follow, making your own way and being at one with the mountain, combining the effort of ascending and the pure joy of descending.
 
As natural as walking, ski touring is just as simple, gliding forward on the skis, adapting a regular rhythm and discover the wide open spaces and the cherry on the cake, that delicious descent, the ultimate reward at the end of the effort.
 
The choice of the descent will be decided by the current snow conditions. Sometimes 30 minutes is enough to reach untouched valleys and fantastic slopes covered on fresh snow. 

PROGRAM

The Mont Blanc area is full of trails for ski touring for all abilities and durations. 
 
Learn and discover the techniques of ski touring with your guide. These techniques include up and downstream conversions, safety procedures and progression tips.
