Tours & Uphill skiing trails

Map of areas to tour

Although ski touring has grown in popularity, it still remains a high-mountain and out-of-bounds activity. This fulfilling sport requires knowledge about the mountains, snow conditions, and local weather patterns. We recommend, prior to heading out, speaking with local professionals (high-mountain guides and patrollers) and notifying your friends or accommodations as to you where you plan to venture.

Mountain huts

The Roc de la Peche Hut is open all year long (Spring and Autumn: contact them), allowing you to explore dozens of hikes, each one more spectacular than the next, in the wild and well-preserved Chavière Valley.

The Barmettes Hut, open in both winter and summer, is located at the upper end of the alpine ski trail "Les Fontanettes," at the top of the Le Génépy chairlift. At sunrise you can ski to Col de la Grande Casse Pass, Réchasse Glacier, or even Arollets Valley. Below Col de la Vanoise Pass venture into the most well-known valley of the entire Vanoise Range where the massive south face of the Grande Casse, the area's highest peak, rises high above.

Starting at the end of March, the Col de la Vanoise and Péclet-Polset huts are open, providing easier access to the high mountains. On either side of the legendary Vanoise glaciers, explore a wide range of backcountry tours for all levels.
