The main objective of this ski touring trip is obviously to have fun and also to find the best snow for the descent! As a connoisseur and expert of the ski area, the guide will choose an ideal ski touring itinerary to enable you to make the most of the slopes and combes that this sector of the Bornes-Aravis-Bargy massif offers. The Col de Balafrasse, the Col du Rasoir or the Tête d'Auferrand could be the best objectives depending on the local snow conditions and the weather.
