Skitouring Gran Paradiso - Italy

Skitouring week with Gran Paradiso (4061M) ascent

This beautiful, classic skitouring itinery through the Gran Paradiso National Park is of intermediate technical level and has an extra charm by the presence of marmots, chamois and ibex. The Gran Paradiso (4061m) is considered to be one of the easiest four thousand meter peaks to climb.

The rendezvous is near Courmayeur. The next morning we check our equipment and enjoy half a day of freeriding with the guide in the ski resort of Courmayeur. After lunch we take our car and leave for the Val de Cogne - Valmontey.

Then we continue our journey hiking and later on skis equipped with climbing skins in just over 3 hours up to Rifugio Vittorio Sella (2584m), the comfortable starting point for the wonderful day trips from the next 2 days. You can enjoy Italian cuisine and hospitality. The hut is spacious and you feel at home here. From here we can climb the peaks of the Punta del Inferno (3395m) and the Grande Sertz (3552m), from which we enjoy beautiful views of the Vanoise, Mont Blanc and Gran Paradiso.

In the middle of the week, we descent to the valley we stay in a comfortable hotel, where we can enjoy a good night's sleep. Meanwhile we are well acclimatized, so we are fit to the climb the Gran Paradiso, the highlight of this week! In nice weather awaits us one of the best views of the Alps and with some luck we can descend all the way to Pont where we can relax and reminisce.

For this very nice skitouring week, you should be able to descend smoothly in all types of snow.

The huts and hotels are well catered with Italian cuisine!
