edition one

VALGRISENCHE, ITALY-FRANCE, 22-26 MARCH 2018

The Valgrisenche valley is one of the beautiful collaterals of the Aosta Valley.

It is known for its particularly cold and snowy winter conditions, a promised land for powder skiing.

At the very end of the valley is located the Rifugio Bezzi, at 2250 m above sea level. This comfortable mountain hut will host the event for 4 days and nights. The hut is accessible by a 2-hour hike on skis from the valley bottom.  The enrolment fee includes accommodation with full board, an opportunity to savor the authentic Italian mountain gastronomy.

Given the long and committed character of the course, with more than 2,700 meters of vertical elevation, the participants must be committed practitioners of ski mountaineering. The itinerary is intersected with rewarding downhill sections and breathtaking summits to ease the effort.
