Châtillon on ski touring

Description

The summit of the Col de Châtillon is located on the ridge above the village of Les Diablerets and the Pays-d’Enhaut. You can choose the variation most appealing to you: Either via the challenging route over the large ridge to the summit of Châtillon or slightly less exposed up via the Col de Tarent and then over the east ridge.

From the village of l’Etivaz, go into the valley of L'Eau Froide which follows the stream of the same name. The climb continues through the alpine slopes before arriving on the Lavaux plateau. Then, a coomb to the Col de Châtillon awaits you. The descent is by the same route to the Gour. Then go in the direction of Pra Cornet and the Corne des Brenlaires before descending to the village of l’Etivaz.
