Ski Touring in the Vanoise provides an introduction to ski touring in the French département of Savoie and covers the Vanoise National Park and surrounding area. The guide covers all the major areas of the region and includes tours of all levels of difficulty and of all styles, from one-day trips to multi-day, hut-to-hut journeys. The tours that have been chosen reflect the variety of landscape and skiing that makes ski touring in Savoie so special.
 
The guide is divided into 12 chapters, which describe 63 days of skiing, with over 100 additional alternatives and variations. Although far more than an off-piste skiing guide, many of the tours start from resorts and can be combined with a resort-based ski holiday.
