Why did you choose Aussois for the Grand Parcours?

"The village resort ofAussois was chosen because it is the only place in the French Alps to offer such a wide range of vertical activities. In a small area we have the via-ferrata of Le Diable, numerous
numerous climbing sites of all levels of difficulty in a variety of geologies, major mountain and valley climbing routes and alpine-style rocky ridges, and even a new bouldering site (on the plateau du Mauvais Berger)".

The Guide Bureau ofAussois supports the event, with what objectives?

"We at the Bureau des Guides are very keen to host this event, because it seems to us that since the Maurienne International Open (late 1980s, early 1990s), climbing has been somewhat sidelined in our region. We are convinced that we have enormous assets for this activity in Haute Maurienne Vanoise and we think that these Meetings are a very good way of promoting it".

Who is the Grand Parcours for?

"The Grand Parcours is open to beginners as well as experienced climbers and to children from 7/8 years old if they are accompanied by their parents. In short, it's a great way to introduce our territory to people who will come back to climb with us and to help them discover the mountain".
