Description

Two exceptional days to cross the Bauges massif on ski touring, from south to north, from Savoie to Haute-Savoie.

The opportunity to stay in immersion in nature, and to ski the most beautiful slopes of the Hautes Bauges: Arclusaz, Arlicots, Armène, Mont de la Coche, Chaurionde. On the programme are beautiful and extensive itineraries, in areas that are still preserved from the crowds.

Departure from Annecy, by collective car, return to the Sambuy station, then on to Annecy by public transport or private taxi.

Program

D1: Departure from Annecy at 7am, about 1 hour drive. Then departure of the raid, adapted to the group and the conditions of the mountain. The basic programme of the day is to follow the east face of the Dent d'Arclusaz, the north face of Arlicots and the combe de la Lanche. Following this last descent, a final climb will take you to the bivouac site, in the heart of the forest. A magical place to rest and enjoy the beauty of the Bauges.

D2: departure for the Mont de la Coche, a rarely skied summit. Descent on the Col d'Orgeval, then up to the summit of the Pointe de la Chaurionde, to descend its north-east couloir, to the chalets of the Aulp de Seythenex. Then a forest track which drops you off at the foot of the Sambuy resort. We will share a meal at the bar "l'Avalanche" before taking the vehicle to return to another world. The world said normal.
