Improvement on ski touring-Aravis Range

The Grand Bornand & La Clusaz Aravis Ski Resort region is a haven of peace in winter... Far from the fury of the great ski resorts, the discerning hiker will encounter chamois, ibex, variable hare, and if he looks up to the sky, the impressive bearded vulture! Blow, close your eyes, you will only hear your breath, and the silence of the mountain... It is in this kingdom of tranquility that our guides invite you to discover ski touring, through this rich and authentic heritage of the Grand Bornand valley. The Col de Balafrasse, facing East, is located in the Bargy mountain range, between the Pic de Jallouvre and the Pointe du Midi: an ideal position to admire the Aravis mountain range in front of it, and enjoy the soft colors of early morning ski!

Program

For this advanced ski touring outing, we suggest you go from the Grand-Bornand side to Le Bargy, depending on your experience and the level of the group we will adapt the objective in order to improve your ski touring technique. , both uphill and downhill.
With the aim of finding the best snow on the descent, but also to have fun, we will choose a ski touring route to evolve as best as possible on the slopes and valleys offered by this sector of the Bornes-Aravis-Bargy massif.
The Col de Balafrasse, the Col du Rasoir or the Tête d'Auferrand may prove to be prime targets depending on the local snow conditions, but also the weather.
In general for an advanced outing, we evolve on slopes of up to 35 °, on vertical drops up to 1000 meters, in order to review all the techniques allowing you to progress in downhill skiing but also to take the time to '' observe the terrain, the quality of the snow and exchange some knowledge that will allow you to achieve autonomy.
