The West part of the Mont-Blanc massif remains most certainly less known for touring skiers. The Tré la tête high alpine valley is made of large glaciers and summits accessible to skiers. The summits of Tré la Tête and Domes de Miage offer a great playground with several routes to choose from. We invite you to discover and ski «the great classic of the Domes, via the Armancette glacier route".
