Ski touring in Vallée de la Clarée

TRIP REPORT

I did some ski touring 2-8 March 2019 in the French Alps with my friend Jasper de Vries, local mountain guide Murray Hamilton and four Dutchies from toerskien.org. After a day of off-piste skiing in Puy Saint Vincent and a practice tour in Crévoux, we did a 4 day hut-to-hut tour in Vallée de la Clarée (about 50 km, elevations up to 2900m). Got a black eye after crashing on the last descent but had fun otherwise 🙂

Ski tour day 3: returning to Refuge des Drayères (2180 m) in Vallée de la Clarée, France
