  • Great ballad snowshoeing in the village of Névache at the neck of the scale. Can be done in winter walking, snowshoe or ski of funds (harder). The neck of the scale you can get at Bardonecchia in Italy - not to do in winter because the cot is not ploughed.

  • Port of mountain sniper and easily accessible from France and hard and air from Italy. The transition from one side to another has a high Valley of green meadows, flanked by mountains more than 2mil meters. Highly recommended to make the bike tour
