Monviso ski mountaineering tour

An international ski mountaineering's classic tour, that circumnavigates the Monviso, the "Re di Pietra" of the Cuneo Alps. The great rocky pyramid changes its appearance hour by hour during the path, moving from the severe shadows projected by the north wall, to the beautiful Alevè Wood's slopes, showing finally the vast and boundless panorama of Punta Losetta and Meidassa.

    Cuneo – Nice with your skis on

    A ski mountaineering trip that ideally retraces the historical Cuneo Nizza, a railway line made famous by its numerous tunnels, a route that crosses steep Alpine slopes and marks the transition from the cool Cuneo valleys – covered with snow until late in the season – to the charming Cote d'Azur, with mountains that gently descends towards the sea and to the nearby Provence so close with its lavender scents.
