Sortie peaux de phoque Bendolla 2

Early morning sealskin tour


Enjoy the calming effects of nature during a guided sealskin outing every Wednesday in winter. After your exertion, some relaxation will be in order in the form of a restorative lunch at Restaurant Bendolla at 2,130m altitude.

Do you like to get up early to best experience nature? See a different side to the mountain by ski touring during one of our sealskin outings leaving from Grimentz.

Every Wednesday morning, Christine Torche, an independent ski instructor, meets skiers at 6.20am at the starting point of the Grimentz-Bendolla gondola lift (at 1,600 m) for an energetic climb.

The tour takes you along the ski slope and forest track as the sun slowly rises over fabulous landscapes. The climb will end or start at the high-altitude Restaurant Bendolla (at 2,130m). The route may vary depending on the weather and snow conditions. You don't need any avalanche gear as we stay in safe terrain and go down the slopes while they are still empty.

Every participant must have their own equipment (which must be properly adjusted and in working order) and must be able to use it by themselves.
