(ENG) VAL D'ANNIVIERS FREE-RANDO

A gentle and comfortable practice of mountain skiing in a remarkable location. My choice fell on the Swiss mountains which allow for varied skiing with character. From the Moiry hotel located in Grimentz at the foot of the slopes, we will explore the most beautiful routes in the ski areas of Vercorin, Chandolin / St Luc and Zinal / Grimentz. The "Free-Rando '' practice consists of making skinning / off-piste combinations using the ski lifts and undertaking reasonable climbswith skins. This makes it possible to promote the most beautiful descents of the moment while remaining in the mountain atmosphere but also to practice quiet ski touring in high places. The proximity of the five 4000 meters summits of the imperial crown, the multiplicity of terrains as well as good snow cover open up high-class routes. This part of Valais is a ski gem. A program focused towards the pleasure of skiing and measured efforts.
