EXPERIENCE Ski touring

The Vallon du Fontenil

Great skiing with many options in the heart of a wild valley

The starting point of our ski tour will be the tiny village of Les Boussardes (1626m / 5,334ft), located by the Guisane river slightly before the Col du Lautaret on the Briançon side. From there, we skin up through a beautiful larch forest on the left bank of the Fontenil valley. We continue our way to a bench at the level of the Combeynot lake. Finally, a small valley leads us to more gentle slopes, and we reach the Col des Jumelles Sud (2986m / 9,796ft), characterized by two small rock towers. This ski touring itinerary of the Vallon du Fontenil is a very nice classic where we can often find powder in winter, with an ascent through wild landscapes and a descent guaranteeing great skiing. The icing on the cake is the regular sight of chamois! Vertical: +/-1360m (4,461ft)
