Ski touring with climbing skins - Grimentz

Every Wednesday morning, meeting at the starting point of the Grimentz-Bendolla gondola lift

Do you like getting up early to enjoy the natural world? Put on your climbing skins and explore the mountains in a different way on one of our ski touring trips from Grimentz.

Every Wednesday morning, from December 19th 2018 to April 17th 2019, Ms. Christine Torche (independent ski instructor) meets skiers at 06:25 at the starting point of the Grimentz-Bendolla gondola lift (1600 m) for an energetic climb towards the Anniviers peaks.

The tour takes you along ski piste and forest track, as the sun slowly rises over fabulous landscapes. In the early winter, it finishes at the mountain restaurant in Bendolla (2130 m), but later in the season, it continues as far as the Becs de Bosson (2870 m) or to Orzival (2820 m). The route may vary depending on the weather and snow conditions.
