Dynafit and Val Thorens have been working together for several years now to develop ski touring in the resort, making it accessible to all.
To welcome beginners, the resort has created safe, marked out ski touring trails, such as «La Camille», which opened in 2019 in conjunction with Dynafit.
Val Thorens is a gateway to the glaciers and the Vanoise National Park, inviting you to discover the sport, improve or hone your technique. Val Thorens ski area is an endless playground, boasting a wealth of possibilities to fans of ski touring.
Named after one of the Val Thorens founders : "La Camille" ski touring trail, in conjuction with Dynafit
Setting out from the resort, the itinerary pays homage to Camille Rey, a high mountain guide and a leading light in Val Thorens’ history.
It offers a gentle climb through a world that was dear to Camille. Archive photographs from the resort being built back in 1971, to modern-day images, stories and anecdotes from its first residents, with tales of help and support displayed along the way.
Access to the trail is free and its opening hours are the same as the ski area.
