Get Your Mountain Fill : 6 Haute Savoie Resort Ski Tours

These resort ski tours are the perfect way of getting some exercise and a bit of stress-free mountain time!

Description

Over the past decade resort ski touring has become increasingly popular amongst alpine residents, and for good reason. The lack of avalanche danger and crevasses make it pretty stress-free and yet you can get a great, and mountain-specific, workout in beautiful surroundings.

Ski resorts have long tolerated tourers using their pistes for a bit of training, but these same resorts are increasingly seeing the benefits of providing ski touring facilities, particularly in the Covid-19 era, where the definitions of travel and freedom were forever changed. Nowhere was this more true than in the wild Haute Savoie region of France - an area which is home to the Alps' highest mountain and some of the best ski resorts on the planet. We've showcased 6 resort ski tours in this mythical region - 4 above St Gervais and Les Contamines, and 2 in the legendary Chamonix valley. Views, ambience and perfect touring terrain are guaranteed on all 6!

So whether you just want a quick blast, you're training for a mountain mission, or you just need a bit of chilled time in the hills, this is the guidebook you need.
