The panorama is crazy! and endless runs. All orientations are possible throughout the day.

Once more, skinning at the top of the lifts seems essential to me to stray off the beaten track, in search of wild routes and make the most of this exceptional setting. Not more than 300 m climb in ski touring, at the beginning or end of the descent, we should be okay, right?
