WINTER

The atmospheric and panoramic views of the ski slopes, or the solemn silence and majesty of untouched nature.

The high valley of the Gran San Bernardo is full of remote and solitary corners, with changing beauty which offers us, through ski mountaineering, the unique experience of silence amidst the roar of quiet and winter colours.

With this as your backdrop, and wind takes you to the top of peaks and hills, you ascend the slopes through woods, huts, and landscapes that make you forget the intensity of the climb. Become lost among the magical views of the main peaks of Valle d'Aosta, while the snow lulls you during the descent.
