Description

Go for two exceptional days with bivouac and cross the Bauges massif on ski touring, from south to north, from Savoie to Haute-Savoie.

This trip will be the opportunity to stay immersed in nature and in the mountains, and to ski the most beautiful slopes of the Hautes Bauges: the Arclusaz, the Arlicots, the Armène, the Mont de la Coche, the Pointe de Chaurionde. There will be beautiful and extensive itineraries on the programme, in sectors still preserved from the crowds.

The departure is from Annecy, by collective car. The return is to the Sambuy resort, then to Annecy by public transport or private taxi.

Program

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

D2: Mont de la Coche and Pointe de Chaurionde.
Departure for the Mont de la Coche, a rarely skied summit. From here, downhill to the Col d'Orgeval, then up to the summit of the Pointe de la Chaurionde, to descend its north-east couloir towards the chalets of the Aulp de Seythenex. Then a forest track will drops us 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".
