Description

Alpine:
Monte Argentera is the high peak of the Mercantour range along the France-Italy border. Corno Stella is the famous alpine wall. In the Mercantour National Park.

Cuneo province is also in close range of alpine rock on the (higher) peak of Monte Viso, visible from all over the Alps.

Ski mountaineering: The northwest-facing basin of Mercantour park often collects and holds much snow, with many options for backcountry ski tours -- after the road opens in springtime. Winter and early-spring options from ski station Limone Piemonte, southwest near Colle di Tenda (FR Col de Tende) and station Argentera, northwest near Colle della Maddalena (FR Col de Larche).
