Ski touring in Clarée Vally
In the valley of the Chardonnet

Ski touring : another way to explore the Clarée Valley !

The Clarée Valley is a fantastic venue for Alpine Ski Touring ...

Come and discover the unique pleasure of skiing through the Clarée's untracked slopes :
 
  • numerous small valleys to get away from it all ...
  • unspoilt landscapes without a single ski lift in sight ...
  • several tours between 2 and 4 hours long starting from the Chalet d'en Hô itself ...

How good a skier do I need to be for ski touring ?

Ski touring in the Claree Valley
Chardonnet

Strong, experienced skiers can ski tour without a guide. Ski touring requires good technical ability and, more importantly, a good knowledge of the mountain environment and snow conditions.

You can also hire a mountain guide. There are several ways to do this : exploratory "découverte" days, intermediate "perfectionnement" days, or simply hiring a guide to take you where you would like to ski.

To find out more, visit the website of the Briançon Guide's Bureau.

 

What equipment do I need for ski touring?

Ski touring gear is not the same as standard descent equipment ! Here are the key differences in equipment that help to make climbing a slope less tiring :

  • lighter skis
  • specific bindings that allow free movement of your heel
  • climbing skins to stop you sliding down !

Don't worry if you don't have ski touring equipment, as you will find all you need  at Névasport  a stone's throw from the hotel.
