Ski Beaufortain

Beaufortain is a massif located at the crossroads of the Mont Blanc and Tarentaise massifs, but which enjoys a very special character: far from the mountaineering and downhill skiing crowds of its neighbours, Beaufortain is a jewel for lovers of wild nature and hiking, summer and winter alike! An authentic region, which has preserved its heritage and traditions, which you will discover throughout this fabulous crossing of the massif. We propose you here an itinerary in 3 days, with nights in a refuge, to enjoy an immersion in the heart of Beaufortain: a journey through lakes, passes and unspoilt valleys!
