STEP 2 /
Day 1 - Morning departure for Val-d’Isère, 3hrs of climb to reach the glaciers in the Rhemes valley, night spent in a holiday cottage in Rhemes-st-Georges, in Italy. The journey has only just begun !

STEP 3 /
Day 2 - Departure around 8:30 a.m. in a mini-bus to reach Valsvarenche, 800m of uneven surface to climb to the Victor-Emmanuel refuge at 2730m night and rest in the refuge, with panoramic view over immaculate valleys, in staggering silence under the stars...What could be better !

STEP 4 /
Day 3 - Departure at dawn to climb the Gran-Paradiso 4061m, approximately 5hrs of climb to reach the summit where you will discover a simply magical view over the peaks of the Alps! 
Downhill on skis over the glacier in a high-mountain atmosphere, 2200m lower down, we reach the valley again and the holiday cottage by mini-bus.
STEP 5 /
Day 4 - Departure at 7:30 a.m. transfer by mini-bus for Valgrisenche, into the helicopter and a few minutes later we reach the Ruitor sector for 2000m of downhill at the bottom of the glacier, we put the skins back on and in less than 1hr we reach the crest which enables us to join a new slope and to steadily get back to our departure point. Very little effort for more than 3000 m of downhill skiing in powder snow, alone in the world. Quite simply amazing!
A holiday that will take you a long way away, and that you will not forget in a hurry, that’s for sure !
