Ski Touring Val Thorens

The pictures below are credited to Mike Hubbard who was one of the instructors that came for the week of touring. He has given permission for you to use his maps and view his pictures via our site to help you plan your routes or just admire the views.

For anyone doing ski touring out of Val T or Les Menuires the Pointe de la Masse valley has some awesome terrain and good ski tours staying along the ridge.

If you have the 3 Valleys pass get onto the far side of Les Menuires area and up the Masse 2 lift, from the top station you can see down into the valley and the large off piste bowl, ridge to the right hand side is a traverse and then when it gets to the end of being able to just traverse skin up and go for all sorts of peaks

Ski down slowly picking route between rocks etc towards the lake at the bottom and the Hut that does lunch/drinks. Then ski down the Hut access road back onto the Val Thorens piste and up the Plan D’Leau lift back into Val T area.

Valley overlooked by the large Piste Patrol station on La Masse summit so you can check in with them for conditions and let them know the route etc and then let the lifty at Plan D’Leau lift know you’re safely out and they can ring the top station so they are all happy you’re safely out.

If you haven’t got a 3 Valley ski pass and just Val T, go from the top of the Boismint lift, off the lift turn right, and then over the ridge to your left. Again some traverse before you need skins and then pick a route!

Checking in with lifties at top of Boismint lift to phone the La Masse station who can then watch your progress, again check out with Plan Dl’Leauy lifties that you’re out of the area.

An awesome valley for off piste skills if you want to practise that before a ski tour, and some great small tours for a few hours/intro to touring.

Enjoy!
