It consists of 14 stages, covering 177 km and 9,000 meters of elevation gain, traversing a diversity of natural landscapes in harmony with centuries-old human presence. This comprehensive crossing is designed to immerse oneself in the ever-surprising nature of the valley.

In February of this year, an abundant snowfall in Valle Maira provided Alessia, Andrea, Gioele, and Marco with unforgettable ski mountaineering days, filled with the thrill of descents through the powder of the woods and traverses across pristine and solitary plateaus.
For them, it was a unique opportunity to discover a territory they were unfamiliar with, which welcomed them with all the beauty that only Valle Maira is capable of.
