Ski touring around the Gran Paradiso – Photo Gallery

Viva la bella Italia. A 6 day circuit of the Gran Paradiso on skis

  • Pre-dawn start. After a short first day, we get a flying start for the best snow
  • Ski mountaineering! The scramble over the Gran Serra is a bit alpine. Skier: John Thomson
  • Spring and Winther. Tim nailing it towards the Chabod hut wine list
  • GP north face - which does get skied, but not when it's like this!
  • Heading east - Mike, Tim and John heading past the Tresenta
  • La dolce vita -  If you're going to be stuck in a hut, then the Pontese with its wide variety of alcohol is a good choice
  • Last day - heading north to the col Teleccio
  • The Col Teleccio is the high point on the final day
  • Home run -  A massive descent back to Lillaz finishes this remarkable tour
