Author\s note

Take advantage of the Chapelet restaurant to have a rest after this first experience!


First of all, go back 100 metres with your skis on your back to reach the starting point of the Combe de l’A. Put on your skis and start your hike on the forest road in a gentle climb.

Then turn right towards the west, where the blue route joins the black one coming from Dranse. The slope is a little steeper on this footpath, which takes you to the ski slopes and under the chair lift.

Then take off your sealskins and finish by going down the ski slope which will take you back to the chairlift departure and to the Chapelet restaurant.

Getting there

Exit the motorway at Martigny.

Follow the direction Grand-Saint-Bernard to Liddes.

Turn right after the tourist office.

Join Dranse and go up to the departure of the chairlift of Vichères-Liddes.

Free parking at the departure of the ski lifts

Take the train to Orsières and then the bus to Vichères (only in winter).
