Join us on a guided hut-to-hut ski tour to discover the secrets of the Cerces massif.
The massif des Cerces is in the southern part of the French Alps on the border with Italy. Located between the national parks of Ecrins and Vanoise, it offers wonderful terrain for ski touring. This area is renowned for its untamed natural beauty and abundance of alpine wildlife, including eagles and other rare birds.
This itinerary is ideal for those who have just started ski touring and wish to complete their first hut-to-hut tour. The vertical differences are reasonable and the descents are not very technical. The terrain is wonderfully varied and interesting - couloirs, narrow passages between limestone cliffs, open rolling slopes, and larch forests make it a fantastic skiing experience.
While the Cerces massif is ideal for easy ski tours, it is also perfect for skiers looking for more sporting and technical outings. The multiple starting points, the dense network of comfortable huts, and the passes connecting the valleys allow for a wide variety of itineraries. We can customize the program to match the technical and physical ski level of any private group.
The huts are exceptionally nice: comfortable, welcoming, hot showers, good and plentiful food - cosy places to relax after a day of ski touring!
