SKI TOURING

In spring, the end of Rhêmes Notre Dame valley is the perfect area for ski touring.

From our mountain hut you can reach 14 different peaks: some of them are easier such as Galisia and Calabre Peak, whereas some others are more difficult as, for instance, Tsantelèina and Granta Parey.

In addition it is also possible to cross the nearby valleys (Valgrisenche with Bezzi mountain hut, Valsavarenche with Chivasso mountain hut and Yseres Valley, in France, with Prariond mountain hut).

All these routes make Gian Federico Benevolo mountain hut one of the best destinations in the Alps for ski touring excursions.
