Full description

Three days of ski mountaineering in a unique setting, that ofAlpe Devero, in the heart of the Ossola valley on the border between Piedmont and Switzerland, about 2 hours from Milan.

The best opportunity to tackle the ski mountaineering season in style, with the right approach to the techniques of ascending with sealskins and the right set-up on the descent to enjoy every moment of the experience. Let's not neglect the safety discourse, which we will address with an Artva search in the field.

What we will do

On arrival at Alpe Devero, we will have a briefing on the programme for the three days of ski mountaineering. It will also be an opportunity to get to know the "adventure companions" of this fantastic experience.

We will make a first, not particularly long excursion, and then dedicate ourselves to the search test with Artva. We will stay in one of the Alpe's typical facilities where we can relax and enjoy the local food.

In the days to follow, there will be trips of varying difficulty and altitude difference, which may range from 800 metres to 1,200 metres, depending on the condition of the snowpack. The purpose of the increasing difficulty is to gradually refine the ascent and descent technique.

Who it is aimed at

This activity is dedicated to those who already have experience with ski mountaineering and want to improve, while discovering new places.

It is not a real course, but an opportunity to practice and improve one's ski mountaineering technique.
