"A good skiing level is required, able to ski red runs minimum."

The tour is named Les Cols'Porteurs 19th century after the pedlars of the past who, by carrying their wares from one mountain to the next, created links between communities. It usually includes a meeting with Guillaume Bertrand, the lift company's operations director.
