Activity description

Come try out backcountry skiing and discover Alpe d'Huez, Oz, and Vaujany with an experienced IFMGA Mountain Guide.

Alone or with friends, PureSkiGuiding aims to take you to wild and unusual places in search of the best snow.

The Grandes Rousses Massif, known for its famous resorts of Alpe d'Huez and Oz-Vaujany, offers a multitude of off-piste routes for all levels.

You will discover incredible vertical drops of more than 2,000 meters (+6,560ft) from the ski lifts or with a little walk.

Denis Ailloud, your IFMGA Guide Mountain, will take you to a backcountry skiing full day trip. He'll choose the route according to the level of the group (1 to 6 participants).

Some examples of classic routes:
- Grand Sablat
- Combe du Cerisier
- Arête de Pied Froid and its amazing descents in the Ferrand Valley

The most adventurous of you can, for example, ski through:
- The Malatres Glacier
- Pic Bayle

The western side also offers many routes that allow you to access the Eau d'Olle Valley in Oz and Vaujany.
