1. Appennino Ligure
2. Val Tanaro
3. Valle del Roia
4. Valle Gesso
5. Valle Stura
6. Valli Maira ed Ubaye
7. Valle Varaita
8. Monviso e Valle Po
9. Val Pellice
10. Valli Chisone e Germanasca

12. Ecrins, Vanoise, Maurienne, Aravis
13. Valli di Lanzo

Looks promising.

Oddly, last week I was able to purchase Freeride Dolomites guidebook (like 6 hours driving to most tours) at the Espace Montagne shop in St-Martin-d’Heres.
But not this new Rapido guidebook (tours just across the border from France).
