Description

I propose you to come and discover (or rediscover) the magnificent Queyras massif during this beautiful initiation to ski touring raids with little autonomy.

During these three days taking place in the heart of the Hautes-Alpes, you will be in total immersion in the mountains thanks to the nights spent in refuge. Close to the Italian border, you will flirt with the 3000 meters of altitude for a wild and pleasant skiing.

The starting point of this itinerary is Saint-Véran, the highest town in Europe and one of the most beautiful villages in France!

This raid can also be an opportunity to improve your ski touring skills by addressing or deepening the following points:

  • Optimization of the ski touring climbing technique.
  • Advice on descents according to the type of snow encountered (powdery snow, windy snow, etc.).
  • Use of safety equipment with practical workshops (avalanche victim research, efficient shoveling, organization of a rescue, etc.).
  • Notions of nivology and outing preparation.
  • etc.
