Discovery Grandes Buffes

Initiation to ski touring, in 1/2 day or full day with the ascent of the Grandes Buffes (2164m) from the resort of Alpe d'Huez: a route far from the slopes to make your first steps in skins.

A magnificent itinerary from the Pic Blanc with a piste or an off-piste to warm up...

The ascent, affordable and not too long, allows a gentle warming up and an approach of the basic techniques, an awareness of the risks of the environment and a first approach of the nivology and the terrain.

A real summit as an objective, where, far from the slopes and isolated from the lifts, you will be able to enjoy a superb panorama and an unequalled calm.

It is with a beautiful off-piste descent that you will finish in beauty this discovery. We will bring you all our technical knowledge to enjoy your first off-piste skiing.
