This off-piste skiing area is regarded as a ski touring paradise, with endless routes to discover by climbing skins. The Parc National de la Vanoise is the ideal terrain, accessible to all levels of off-piste skier and able to satisfy all your desires: riding in climbing skins, with more or less difference in altitude, gentle or steeper descents for adventure and thrill-seekers. Even teenagers can get in on the action, so you can enjoy a family ski tour.

What is ski touring?
Just like Freerando, ski touring is one of those high mountain activities that have developed over the last 20 years to go beyond the classic alpine skiing. Come and find new sensations, combining the pleasure of off-piste skiing and hiking in an adventure land. Get away from the resorts and the slopes for an immersion in nature, close to the mountains and its winter wildlife.
Thanks to the evolution of the off-piste ski equipment, whose performances are now as interesting in ascent as in descent, the ski touring has become an activity within the reach of all.

To be discovered urgently.
Col des Barmes de l'Ours
Accessible by ski touring from the Bellevarde sector in about two hours of walking, the Col des Barmes de l’Ours is located on the skyline for the skier on piste of the Espace Killy. It makes skiers dream and is an object of covetousness as it seems so far away and inaccessible. However, at the start of the slopes and after a beautiful descent into the Vanoise National Park, two hours of walking are enough to get through it. Will go for it ?
Accessible by ski touring from the Vallon de la Sache in Tignes, in about 1h15 of walking, the Terres Rouges offer you one of the most beautiful difference in altitude from the Espace Killy to Tignes-les-Brévières, with a minimum of walking access. An exceptional itinerary, it is reserved for experienced skiers on the way up and down. Incredibly beautiful.
Col de la Sana
Accessible by ski touring from the Combe de la Leisse in Tignes, in about 1h45 of walking, the col de la Sana invites you to the heart of the Vanoise National Park. The access is made in wild ground, in full mountain, in a sumptuous frame. The descent starts with a superb sustained slope to be swallowed in one go, in big curves or by savoring small turns to make the pleasure last, according to your mood…
It continues on a huge hilly plateau with gentle slopes to bring you back to Le Manchet, in Val d’Isère. The most courageous will interrupt the descent halfway down the slope to go back up in 20 minutes to Mont Roup and enjoy a new descent of 800m of difference in altitude.
Accessible by ski touring from the Bellevarde sector in about 3h30 of walking, the Pointe de la Sana dominates the whole ski area of Tignes, Val-d’Isère, the Vanoise and the Haute Vallée de la Maurienne. The three hours of walking are justified from the moment you reach the summit by the sumptuous 360° panorama that is offered to deserving skiers and hikers. This is without counting the magnificent descent that awaits him after long and delicious moments of rest and contemplation.
