Full description

Ski mountaineering is the main activity of our winters. It is a sport capable of combining the two souls of the mountain: that of the ascent and that of the descent.

With a day in the company of our Alpine Guides, we will discover this complete discipline both physically and emotionally. You will learn the technique of ascent and descent, discover the secrets and open up a world of snow, effort, fun and fabulous scenery.

The Susa Valley was the cradle of this activity that is freedom and exploration. Our mountain guides will lead you to discover the peaks and slopes.

What we will do

The meeting point with the guide is Bardonecchia. During our tours, the guides will take you to the main peaks of Bardonecchia, Cesana Torinese and also across the border to France. The route to be followed will be decided according to the weather and the level of the participants.

The groups are always composed of a small number of people so that the guide can, in addition to accompanying, dedicate himself to teaching the techniques of ascent and descent.

Very important is the time devoted during the outing to safety, both in terms of self-rescue techniques and the assessment of the stability of the snowpack and the safest route. No less important is the choice of outing based on the best safety conditions and snow quality.

Who it is aimed at

Ski mountaineering is suitable for all those who know how to ski, are used to walking and want to discover the world of snow away from the ski lifts.
