Alpine touring and off-piste

Alpine touring and off-piste

Alpin Touring

We offer more than 15 km of alpine touring, which serve the ski area as well as the off-piste area.

 To access the alpine touring trails, it is mandatory to register and pay a daily access fee, $ 25 taxes included. By acquiring your right of access, you will obtain a pass giving you the opportunity to make one (1) lift by chairlift or gondola during your day. Access rights are available at the summit lodge or base lodge customer services.

 To obtain your daily access, you must complete the following release: Alpine Touring Waver (paper version also available to customer services). Acquiring your access rights allows us to increase your security and ensure your search or rescue in an emergency.

New this season! Take a lesson with a certified mountain instructor to learn all the secrets of alpine touring at the Massif de Charlevoix. Are you a beginner? Great, we have everything to get you started safely on the alpine touring and we also offer all the equipment for rent on site.

Off-piste sector

The off-piste sector is located on Mount Liguori, north of the station. There are 3 summits, 800m, 550m and 425m, all accessible with backcountry skins or by bootpacking. To access this area, you must have your alpine touring access right or a lift ticket.

Sector 800 is accessible via the Camp-Boule sector, at the very beginning of La Fortin. You can see a poster with a map of the area. Sector 550 is accessible at the base of the Camp-Boule chairlift. For sector 425, it is accessible via the bottom of the 4, in sector 550.
