    Guided ski touring in the Maritime Alps

    Full Description

    Italy has many beautiful ski touring areas that offer fantastic skiing, hospitable ski in ski out hotels, Italian food and wine, great value. You can choose the destination or we can suggest the best location based on the best conditions at the moment. As well as the Adamello Glacier trip, Val Maira and Val Stura in the Italian Maritime Alps is an area that you can not miss. 

     

    Val Maira is a paradise for ski touring. Until a few years ago no one had heard about these valleys that border with the French Maritime Alps. When Bruno Rosano, a local ski touring enthusiast, wrote a book about the area, the outside world discovered this magical hidden place. Don't expect ski lifts, ski slopes or après-ski pubs! Instead, you will have over 130 ski touring itineraries to discover combined with superb Italian food, wine and hospitality. Technically Val Maira is in the Italian region of Piemonte (Piedmont), home to great cuisine tradition and world class wines such as Nebbiolo, Barbaresco and Barolo.
