There are many possiblilities in mountaineering:
Snow routes : The slopes and couloirs of snow will enable you to put finishing touches to your stapling technique to reach sublime summits.
Ice routes : The gully of the Mercantour and the Argentera massifs are a good ways to directly reach the summits.
Mixed routes : During the winter, the Mercantour is a combination of snow and rock which creates an favourable ground for various treks!
Ridge routes : A journey on a tapered ridge is a trip full of thrills where we have the feeling of walking in the sky.
