Dear hikers friends,
For your safety and to allow you to practise your night hiking from 6 PM to 10 PM, the resort offers you a specific track, to go up and down, without any winch groomer (with cable). Except during French school holidays for Christmas and February/March.

This itineray use is under the hiker responsibility who has to be aware of the groomer possible presence. In order to respect the groomer agents work, and for your safety, please stay on this only itineray.
A mountain for all, in safety and respectful of all.

Good advice: discover On Piste, an application but also a website to facilitate the preparation and organisation of your ski touring trip or stay, and to find good addresses and events in sports destinations!
