Ski touring

Ski touring, for an incomparable feeling of freedom

Ski touring or ski mountaineering is THE most popular winter sport currently. Combining skiing and high-intensity sports activity, and a unique, exceptional feeling of freedom, it draws more and more skiers. With its virgin alpine pasture snowfields, our resort is particularly suitable for learning this sport. From Bottières to Grand Turc, or along Ouillon ridges, as shown in the photo above, ski touring is a flagship activity in our resort.

Further evidence of this is that three of the best ski mountaineers in the world are natives of the resort, and train regularly in our mountains…

Learn ski touring

This physically demanding sport can be learned like all other sports. It requires knowledge of your equipment, of the environment in which you practice, and some tips to quickly find pleasure in doing the sport. Check the weather before leaving, carry a DVA, a approved shoveland a A probe at least 2.40m long, a survival blanket and a means of alert: telephone, radio and a map or GPS to ensure your safety.

Ski touring at La Toussuire

From this winter, 2 geographical sectors and 5 signposted routes will be devoted to ski touring. They cover part of the Bottières resort (at an altitude of 1,200m) and the entire slope of our Grand Truc up to its summit at 2,209m.

5 routes designed by our local ski mountaineering specialists, who know the terrain better than anyone! They will be marked out but not groomed. 2 possible departures: the Soleil chairlift in La Toussuire and the Bottières snow front. There are several levels to choose from: easy, intermediate and difficult.
