Hut Ski Tour Itinerary

Ski time

DSC01361-1-scaled

Introducing keen and competent off-piste skiers to the world of hut ski touring. This is great preparation for our hut to hut ski touring trips and an important confidence builder.

Please note this is a suggested itinerary only. While we try and stick to the tried and tested itinerary below, the mountain and the weather sometimes has other ideas. You must be capable of sticking to the required group pace in order to complete this trip. If ability or fitness is hindering the trip, you may be asked to drop out on the trip.

 

DAY 1:

Arrival Day

Arrive in Chamonix. Today is the day to sort out any kit rental and make sure you have everything you need. We highly recommend arriving early in the day in order to arrange your kit rental. You’ll get to know the other members of the group over a delicious 3 course evening meal at the hotel. Overnight in the Hotel.

 

DAY 2:

Shake Down ski day

First day skiing and ski touring. We head out for a few resort runs to warm up the legs. After a short while we’ll go off-piste and refresh on ski touring knowledge and techniques in a safe and mellow environment. We do our first short ski tour and ski back down to the valley floor. Overnight in the hotel.

 

DAY 3:

Approach a mountain hut

Today we head up to a mountain refuge to experience what it’s like to sleep in the mountains. We would ski tour to our chosen refuge based on the current weather and conditions and aim to progress our skills during the day. Overnight in the mountain hut.

 

DAY 4:

Culmination of Skills

Early start for your second last ski tour of the trip. We head out after breakfast in the mountain hut and enjoy a challenging ski tour, putting all our skills and knowledge into practice. With tired legs we head back to the hut in the afternoon for a well deserved dinner and to reflect on the new skills and knowledge that you’ve picked up. Overnight in the mountain hut.

 

DAY 5:

Return to civilisation

After our final mountain hut breakfast we head out for our final ski tour and then descend to the valley in the afternoon. After completion of this course you should be in a good place to take on one of our multi day ski tours such as the Otztal Ski Tour, Haute Route or Gran Paradiso. Overnight in the hotel.

 

DAY 6:

Departure

Check out after breakfast.
