Extended towards the French Tarantaise, Valgrisenche (1664 m) shows its visitor a circle of mountains covered by glaciers. The slopes of this valley are reachable through short trips, long excursions, such as the Tour around Mount Ruitor, and climbs of any kind of difficulty. Rock walls at little distance from the built area, offer plenty of possibilities for free climbing. At Valgrisenche the traces of the past are still numerous and they are a witness about the ancient settlements of man in this valley, strategically important for the transit towards the neighbouring Val d'Isère.
The recollection of the past survives in the traditional manifacture of "drap", a raw woollen fabric for cloths and fittings, made out through the work on ancient looms. Days are often cheerecl by the local chorale. The peculiar microclimate in this valley causes the snow to fall always plentiful and powdry. The skiing district is particularly suitable for beginners and families with children. As for cross-country runs they offer developments and differences in level proper to any skill of training. But the top is made up by skiing by means of helicopter, a recent and modern way suitable for the best skiers. Of course, the valley with all this snow offers chances even to touring skiers. Yet a place is guaranteed for the holidays of those who look for the truest aspects of the mountain, without beeing sportsmen.
