Can I do it?

You don’t need any previous experience with touring but you need to be confident skiing off-piste in all types of snow.
You need a good level of fitness. For example, you must be able to handle a few hours of hiking with 600 metres elevation gain (minimum) or to run an hour without being completely exhausted.
No need to be an Olympian, but during the course, we will be walking for a few hours each day.


A typical course program:

(The introduction course will take place in Chamonix. The exact area will be decided the day prior to the course depending on weather and snow conditions.)

Day 1: – 9 am – Le Brevent – a couple of warm-up runs to check everyone’s ability. Refresher on avalanche safety. Introduction to your equipment and start of the tour (2/3 hours hike). Picnic on the mountain. Practice of kick turns and terrain navigation.

Day 2: A full day itinerary experiencing one of the Aiguilles Rouges most iconic tours. You will put into practice what you’ve learned the previous day.
