Good to know
You can book in two different ways :
You will ski in a group that fits your level of skiing, with 6 skiers per guide maximum.
You will ski in your own group. We still limit the number of skiers at 6, for safety and comfort reasons, but if you are less, we will not fill up the group. Prices on demand.
My ski level
To go with us, you have to be able to ski. Then we adjust the programs to your skills and fitness.We think that it’s crucial to form homogenous groups and for that purpose we are grateful if, when booking, you can take the time to define your level according to the descriptions below :
Off Piste beginner
I ski well on piste and I can go down almost all reds. I have no off piste experience yet but I’m dreaming of my first powder turns ! Physically I have no problems skiing the whole day at my own pace.
Off Piste medium level
I am a good skier on piste and I can ski everywhere, including blacks. I have some experience in off piste and I can make turns if the snow is regular and the slope no too steep. I would like to improve both my technique and confidence outside the piste.
Off Piste high level
I am a very good skier and no piste is too hard for me. I have already a good experience off piste and I no longer go for on piste ski vacations… I feel safe in almost all kinds of snow but I want to improve in all conditions.
Off Piste expert
I am an extremely good off piste skier in all kind of terrain and all types of snow. I feel comfortable with long hikes, long days, deep snow and steep slopes… I want new challenges !
Off Piste or Touring ?
Let us help you to find the skiing of your dreams.
Lift served Off Piste
With seven different ski resorts the possibilities to find good snow from the lifts are almost unlimited.We take you where the conditions are the best at the moment.
Randonnée / Alpine Touring
To access the peaceful parts of the mountains, to escape from people and lifts, to challenge your physical condition or simply to find the very best snow in the most spectacular places, touring is the way !The walk uphill is comfortable thanks to climbing skins and alpine touring bindings, and it doesn’t take more than a few minutes of effort to enter a whole different world. Of course a few hours will take you even further. Silence, untouched snow and secret spots are the reward for your efforts, and this is accessible whatever your level and anytime during the season. From the touring beginner to the backcountry expert, the Maurienne valley will give you what you’re looking for.
To make the best of your stay in Maurienne, we strongly recommend to use touring equipment. Even a really short hike can make a huge difference ! Don’t hesitate to ask us for rental possibilities.
We offer three different accommodations, they are all centrally placed in the valley and a drive between 5 and 30 minutes will take us to all the resorts.
They offer a similar standing, with a good and friendly service, great french food and are located in small genuine villages.
The three of them are at the same price.
Please look at the photos on the diaporama to the left of the page, and make your choice !
