Ski touring

Imagine untouched snow fields, untracked runs - the harder you work for your turns the more enjoyable they are. Between the Lautaret Pass and the Emparis Plateau there are plenty of touring opportunities, enough to fit all skill levels and all snow conditions, from gently inclined snow-covered mountain plateaus to ski mountaineering on the North facing side of the valley.

Winter touring is not risk free. Take into account the weather and the avalanche risk. Make sure you bring everything you might need in the present conditions. Choose an itinerary that suits your level and your knowledge of the mountains. Don't hesitate to call on a mountain professional to guide you.
