The Compagnie des Guides de Chamonix offers you a half-day discovery of ski touring. The perfect opportunity to take the plunge and try the experience! The Grands Montets resort area is ideal for a first experience. Go on a discovery from the Bochard lift (2 766m). We join Lognan Glacier (2 700m). We skin up to Rognons Glacier (3 050m) through Col des Rachasses. At this point, we start the gorgeous descent to the Argentière Glacier, which we follow all the way to refuge de Lognan (2 067m) back on piste. 350 m vertical ascent.

Your mountain guide will introduce you to the basic techniques. It will teach you the ski touring stride as well as kick turns. He will also give you personalized advice to improve your technique on the descent. This half-day is intended for skiers with off-piste experience and wanting a gentle introduction to ski touring.
