Oxygenate yourself in the mountains, work on your coordination and endurance, move forward alone in the snow, clear your head, admire the landscapes... Ski touring is the best way to explore the immensity of the mountains in winter.

Imagine yourself alone in the world, setting your own tracks, in good powder! We go up with the skins and we go down skiing. Please note that it is recommended to be able to ski in all snow conditions.

A new marked ski touring route allows seal skin enthusiasts to reach the summit of Crête Blanche. More than a kilometer of ascent in the forest for 150 m of vertical drop, ideal for learning about this discipline.
Departure from Col de la Croix Fry, at the foot of the “Grand Crêt” ski lift.

Do not hesitate for your first outings, to be accompanied by a guide!
