Are you looking for a more intense, pure ski experience? Forget the lifts and groomed slopes of ski resorts, try backcountry skiing!
Nowadays, manufacturers offer wide and lightweight skis, making them perfect for going both up and down.
The pleasure of walking up in wide areas and skiing down untouched slopes is unique.
Depending on one’s level and physical condition, one can easily consider routes 3 to 4 hours long, and even several day long raids!
500€ for 1 to 2 people / day
40€ per additional person / day
In February school period estimate possible.
You’ll get plenty of time skinning up slopes and skiing back down. More importantly, you’ll learn the art of backcountry decision-making and skiing techniques.

Your safety is my main concern. I carry out a process every morning in order to limit the risks:
Sometimes it is wiser to change the itinerary in order to be sure to spend a safe and fun time in the mountains. If I consider that the conditions are not safe enough we will choose another route.
I will provide an avalanche safety equipment (beacon, shovel and probe) to each participant.
Before each ski trip I will check your gear and advise you on the right equipment for the trip we have planned.
