From the forest of Vichères to the ridge between the Entremont Valley and the Val Ferret!
This medium level course takes you into very different worlds until the panorama gives you the turn!
Best period to go there
Make a welcome stop at the snow bar in the middle of the course!
Head north-west through the forest and then west before branching off to the south to climb to Plan Beu, Plan Monnay and then the Bavon ridge. You will pass in front of the snow bar to continue to the right of the ski area until you reach La Téjeure.
On your right, you will discover the Catogne in the shape of a volcano, the Dents du Midi, Champex and its lake, then the whole Val Ferret with the Dolent, the French-Italian-Swiss border, as a highlight.
On your left, the imposing Combins massif with the Grand Combin at 4,314 metres, the second highest peak in French-speaking Switzerland!
Leave the highway at Martigny.
Follow the direction Grand-Saint-Bernard until Liddes.
Turn right after the tourist office.
Join Dranse then go up to the departure of the chairlift of Vichères-Liddes.
