Why did you choose Aussois for the Grand Parcours ?

"The village resort of Aussois was chosen because it is the only place in the French Alps to offer such a variety of vertical activities. We have in a small area the via-ferrata of the Diable, many climbing
numerous climbing sites of all difficulties in various geologies, great climbing routes in the mountains and in the valley and rocky ridges typical of mountaineering and even a new bouldering site (at the plateau du Mauvais Berger)".

The Aussois guides' office supports the event, with what objectives?

"We are very motivated at the guides' office to host this event because it seems to us that since the Maurienne International Open (end of 1980, beginning of 90) climbing has been a bit put aside in our territory. 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 to promote 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".
