Formazza Short Tour - Italy - 3 Days

The tour is based in the very north of Piemonte (Italy), on the boarder with Switzerland, this region has some very interesting mountains to climb in spring with skis.  The very gentle mountains and glaciers along with comfortable mountain huts make this trip one of the best introductions to experiencing "hut to hut" ski touring.

This is shorter sister tour to the same 5 Day tour in Formazza.  It can be done as part of a ski week in Alagna or indeed as a short weekend ski tour.
