How about seeking out new horizons? Skiing somewhere different for a change?

We can offer a number of destinations, both near and far, with spectacular scenery ranging from the gentle charm of the Beaufortain to the glacial wilderness of Greenland.

The list below, while comprehensive, is far from exhaustive, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to discuss your requirements for a unique, tailor-made trip of a lifetime.

Locations

 

 

Beaufortain

A wonderful combination of ski touring and gastronomy.

5-6 days introductory level ski touring, nights spent in a comfortable hotel with excellent food.

This ski touring trip takes place in the Beaufortain, home for the last twenty years of the famous “Pierra Menta” ski mountaineering race. On the trail of champions (albeit at a slightly more sedate pace) we will be discovering the ski touring routes that have helped forge the area’s reputation as a jewel in the crown of French alpine ski touring.

From our hotel base, we will use the lift system to reach a different area every day from where we start our ski touring. Two to three hours walking with a vertical ascent of between 400-500m is all it takes to discover the outstanding beauty of the Beaufortain; its pastures, ancient mountain cottages and of course the well-deserved summits before a glorious ski back down.

The Beaufortain is a mid-height mountain range whose highest peak barely reaches 3000m, yet the climactic conditions of the area guarantee excellent snow conditions. Interestingly, the area has remained relatively untouched by the commercial ski industry and thus retains its authentic character, providing us with all the ingredients for a great week of ski touring.

Bulgaria

A taste of the East!

Ever faithful to our passion for off-piste which has inspired us for many years, we would like to propose a week’s off piste skiing in Bulgaria.

A cold, continental climate associated with the moisture of the Black Sea creates conditions for powder skiing that are becoming increasingly difficult to find in the Alps, at least for the early part of the season.

Equipped with a dozen new generation ski lifts, the resort of Bansko will be our base for the week. The surrounding peaks at around 3000m altitude also offer some great ski touring possibilities from the lifts.

The alpine scenery with its forests of widely spaced trees guarantees wonderful tree skiing with great visibility in the case of bad weather
