Ice climbing in Aravis

In summer, the Aravis attract lovers of wild spaces, hikers, climbers, contemplatives... In winter, some corners of the massif are radically transformed: the cold freezes the movement of water, giving rise to all kinds of frozen structures, suitable for ice climbing. From streaming to ice climbing, we will make you discover this winter an activity rich in emotions!

Ice climbing is an activity that is similar to rock climbing in its physical, vertical and direct relationship to the elements. 
The Aravis are full of waterfalls that are sometimes not very popular in summer; this activity will allow you to rediscover isolated areas of the massif in winter, to enjoy its calm, while bringing you a small dose of adrenaline!
Accessible to all, for beginners or advanced, the waterfall can be practiced on a natural waterfall of one or more lengths, depending on winter conditions.
We suggest you to discover the following areas: icefalls at Manigod (Vaisseau de Pierre), at Le Reposoir (Col de la Colombière), at La Giettaz. Depending on the winter, some icefalls are more ice rich than others, so the choice of icefalls will depend on the conditions at the time.
