The “wild” version of skiing
Ski-touring was originally designed to be done outside of the ski areas, and to be able to explore the mountains without using the ski lifts.
After the pleasurable yet strenuous effort to get to the top, experience the sheer exhilaration of skiing back down through the unspoilt natural environment, with the added bonus of the spectacular view of the Oisans mountains!
Leave the village of Villard-Reculas to climb up to Le Signal, making sure to respect the safety instructions (find out more from the mountain professionals, the village of Villard-Reculas is surrounded by avalanche slopes). You can reach the high altitude itineraries by using the ski lifts, or you can choose a wilder route.
