Photo Essay: Off-Piste Progression in Tignes

Pascal Arpin – A Freshtracks Guide in the Tarentaise Valley sent in the below images following the Freshtracks Off Piste Progression #2 trip in Tignes.

“We were worried about the snow conditions at the beginning of the week but nature offered us fresh snow. Not big snowfalls but enough to have an enjoyable skiing experience.

As usual, the groups were very nice and I decided with my group to try a new experience, skinning. They exchanged their alpine skis for touring equipment and on saturday we skinned up to col des Fours above le Fornet and did a nice tour with beautiful virgin slopes. Everybody was happy by this new experience and I’m sure had snowy dreams.”
