2 splendid itineraries allow you to discover ski touring from the snow front of Chinaillon and Grand-Bornand village respectively.
The first route starts from the arrival station of Joyére in Le Grand-Bornand, this route will allow you to access not far from the Roc des Arces under Mont Lachat de Châtillon, the route passes through a magnificent forest and the view of the nearby Aravis range will leave you with beautiful memories.
The second route starts from Mulaterie in Chinaillon, there is little passage in the forest, and it will take you under the Pointe d'Almet, the view at the top of the Pointe Perçée is impressive, the only negative point is the proximity of the ski lifts: a little noisy.
In both cases, these ski touring itineraries will allow you to familiarize yourself with the equipment (skis, seal skins, boots and avalanche rescue equipment), your mountain guide who is in the Aravis region can give you valuable advice in order to optimize your energy in conversions and other ski touring basics!
Once this step is completed, you will need to improve your skills in order to discover wilder routes far from the resorts where the practice of ski touring takes on its full meaning.
