The Terre Rouge ski touring short break trip is a beginners ski touring experience around Mont Thabor (between France and Italy)
You are looking for a nice and smooth 1st experience in a mountain hut in winter. Something not to challenging, something fun and different? Terre Rouge mountain hut (2182m), in the Cerces range above Valmeinier is definitely the place to have your 1st ski touring experience.
The hut was built in 2017, so brand new and very comfy. And the Neuvache valley offers many different possibilities with nice and easy slopes.
Day 1 :
Refuge Terre rouge 2182m
We’ll meet in St michel de Maurienne (or directly in Valmeinier) around 8.30/9 am for a coffee and equipment check. We’ll then drive to Valmeinier all together to get our ski passes. We’ll start with the lifts to reach the highest point of the resort (2524m) and then reach the hut. There are different itineraries and we’ll see according to the group level which one we’ll take.
Day 2 :
Col des Marches 2725m
There are many possibilities. A good one is with an early start to go towards Notre-Dame-des-Neiges a small mountain chapel and then climb up to Petit Fourchon at 2498m and Col des Marches. The view on the Maurienne valley is fantastic and it worse the effort !!The descent follows a nice little valley back down Valmeinier ski resort.
