Aiguille de la Grande Sassière

73640, Sainte-Foy-Tarentaise
All year round.


The Grande Sassière needle is on the French-Italian border, between Savoie and the Aosta Valley. It offers a magnificent view of the French and Italian summits and the valley where the Grande Sassière nature reserve is located.
The Grande Sassière is a mythical and unique summit in the world of the mountain since it offers the possibility of climbing to more than 3700 meters of altitude in trail shoes, if the final ridge is without snow. This is often the case in summer, but the rest of the year, it's ice axes and crampons! Do not hesitate to contact mountain guides to accompany you in the ascent of the Aiguille.
