Immersing yourself in the heart of the Beaufortain massif, on a 3-day, 2-night touring trek in a mountain hut, will undoubtedly leave you with a taste of "r'viens-y". You'll discover why the Beaufortain is so famous for ski touring, and, we promise, we won't exceed 1000m of D+ per day - unless your legs beg for more!
On the first day of your ski tour, we'll meet you at Les Pars above the Côte d'Aime in Tarentaise. You'll meet up with your guide and take the opportunity to check your equipment: it's time to set off.
Your first stage will take you up the Vallon du Cormet d'Arêches to the refuge de la Coire, where you'll spend the night. With the Pierra Menta in the background, the adventure continues for a second day on skis, via the Col du Coin and Col du Bresson to the Presset refuge. The following morning, we set off on skis relatively early for the last day of our raid, with a 1400m sunny descent to reach the vehicles via the Combe de la Neuva.
The stages vary from 4 to 6 hours of effort, with up to 1000m of D+ in wild, unspoilt landscapes.
Level required: The Pierra Menta ski tour is accessible to good skiers (comfortable on all types of snow). You must be able to cover at least 1000m of vertical drop per day over 3 consecutive days, carrying a 10kg pack.
