Ski touring Val Pellice

Rate this item
(1 Vote)
Our destination is Val Pellice, a forgotten valley in the wild Piedmont region of Italy, just on the other side of the Queyras in France. Our basecamp is a very comfortable mountain hut built on a plateau in the heart of a ski touring paradise. We leave civilization behind and access the hut by snowmobile. Every morning we have a 360° view of options to find the best snow and most interesting slopes. After a day of skiing, why not give ice climbing a try? In the evening, after a hot shower, you will be able to enjoy the warm and cozy atmosphere in the lounge that entices you to relax, chat, and play the piano or guitar. A pleasingly simple ski touring holiday with an exceptional opportunity to discover this beautiful Italian valley.

Highlights:
- Stunning scenery
- Discover Italian heritage
- Over 300 possible ski tours in the area!
