Off Piste Skiing and Touring near Val d’Isere

I have just returned to Saint Gervais this evening following another great couple of days in the Espace Killy. Yesterday, Rosie and I had a great time off piste and on piste skiing in the Val d’Isere area. We found lots of excellent snow and skied lots of classic off piste runs such as La Vallee Cugnai.

Today Gayle, Rosie and I made the ascent of the Col des Barmes de L’Ours (3077m) and one of the summits of the Rochers de Barmes de L’Ours (3147m) before making the long descent to Le Manchet.

There is still plenty of fresh tracks to be had in powder snow in the Val d’Isere area for those willing to use ski touring kit.
