Steep skiing accessible with ski lifts

For a lot of skiers, the Alps are a fantastic playground with huge potential for fun, but for some, it is more than that, it is a place where they can put into practice their dreams of extreme sporting feats. For many years, the Alps have witnessed the incredible accomplishments of extreme sporting pioneers such as Sylvain Saudan, Pierre Tardivel, Anselme Baud, Patrick Vallençant to name just a few, skiing down numerous steep lines and always pushing the limits further. Today, we offer you the opportunity of following in the steps of these pioneers, guiding you down major itineraries that made the Alps the cradle of this philosophy.
