Snowshoes and ARTVA kit rental

Snowshoes and ARTVA kit rental

Discover the magic of snow in complete safety.

The Maira valley awaits you to enjoy its mountains, free from ski lifts, perfect for getting in touch with Nature.

If you are into snow hiking, freeriding or ski touring, you are in the right place. You can rent snowshoes, or “ciastre” as they are called in these valleys, and the complete Ortovox kit, which is essential for tackling outings on the snow in complete safety.

We have selected simple, enchanting and danger-free itineraries, to be covered with snowshoes or skis. You will find both routes suitable for beginners and families, as well as more demanding tours, to discover the wildest corners of the valley. Come and have fun, but without risking too much!
