Val Stura day touring – FULL
February 11, 2018 - February 16, 2018
In early winter, it is often the case that Val Stura sees big storms coming up from the Mediterranean. I was on reconnaissance to the area in January 2017 when conditions elsewhere in the Alps were dreadful to non-existent, and found excellent powder down to road level.
It is currently below the radar compared to nearby Val Maira, but my observation is that the ski touring is equally good, if not better in some respects. It has a small ski area that can boost us to 2500m to give both off piste and side country options as well as more classic day tour itineraries from the road.
