Detailed program

The previous day
Appointment at 6.30 pm at the guides’ office.

Day 1
We leave Saint Gervais through Mont Blanc tunnel around 8am. We arrive in the small valley of St. Bartholomew around 9:30AM and put on the skins to reach via the cross-country ski trails, in 1:30, the beautiful and comfortable Magia refuge at 2000m altitude. Time to stop and enjoy our first cappuccino of the weekend. Beautiful first hike and ascent of Mount Morion (2711m) or Col Tsomioy (2642m) depending on the conditions in the area. Picnic at the top and gently back down to our comfortable base camp where the aperitif and dinner with best regional products awaits us.

Day 2
After a typical breakfast, we leave quietly towards the Becca Fontaney (2972m) to arrive at about noon at the summit where we enjoy the panorama. (Possibility also to have lunch around 13h at the refuge downhill). From the summit, 1400m of descent awaits us, between beautiful slopes and very pleasant forest ski. We join the valley in the middle of the afternoon.

The guides could be led to change the program depending on the weather conditions, the mountains and the level of the participants.
