Details

Ski Touring in the Vanoise provides an introduction to ski touring in the French département of Savoie and covers the Vanoise National Park and surrounding area. Skiing exploded in Savoie in the 1960s and 1970s when every mountain village wanted to exploit the 'white gold' that fell every winter. Despite the massive development of ski resorts, including some of the biggest and best in the world, many areas remained untouched and became the reserve of ski tourers. It is in these untouched areas that you will find the real 'white gold' of Savoie.

The guide is aimed at skiers who find the magnificent, unspoilt scenery and peace and quiet of the mountains as exhilarating as the thrill of a perfect descent. The guide covers all the major areas of the region and includes tours of all levels of difficulty and of all styles, from one-day trips to multi-day hut-to-hut journeys. The tours that have been chosen reflect the variety of landscape and skiing that makes ski touring in Savoie so special.

The guide is divided into 12 chapters which describe 63 days of skiing with over 100 additional alternatives and variations. Although more than an off-piste skiing guide, many of the tours start from resorts and can be combined with a resort-based ski holiday.
