Quiet mountains, friendly huts
The Val d’Aosta in Italy is a vast mountainous region with great Italian ski touring summits from friendly huts with good food and wine.
The Benevolo hut in the Gran Paradiso area offers a great base for day ski tours. Climb a summit or col each day and return to the hut in the evening. This works well as a 3 or 4 day itinerary.
The Chabod hut at the foot of Gran Paradiso is great for a 3 day hut trip with a warm-up tour and culminating with the Gran Paradiso summit.
We have many other itineraries, mail us for details and other itineraries.
