Georgia and ski touring

With this 7-day stay, including 6 days of skiing, you will be immersed in this Italian valley which has managed to remain wild and authentic and will be able to fully appreciate the Occitan culture.
In this deep valley snow is present even late in the season.
From December to April this little corner of paradise offers you the choice of more than 100 ski-mountaineering routes, without you coming across any ski lift. Your guides know the region well and will be able to make this raid in magnificent landscapes, far from mass tourism, a time of rejuvenation and sporting pleasures.
The very varied summits, of all difficulties, all heights make it possible to adapt to the weather (possibly), the level and the shape of the participants. From the beginner course, at very accessible altitude summits, to the glacier course, you will have everything you want.
