Description

Start your snowshoe hike in the village of La Lécherette. The route up the 1749-metre-high Monts-Chevreuils follows the former ski slopes and offers great opportunities to enjoy the snow-covered landscape.

Your starting point is the small village of La Lécherette, located between the summit of the Col des Mosses and l’Etivaz. Put on your snowshoes and start the climb on the packed path. During your ascent, about halfway up and just before the final climb, turn around and catch the view of the Lac de l’Hongrin with its imposing dam. Later, once arrived at the Monts-Chevreuils hut, you will have a magnificent view of the Pays-d’Enhaut. From here, you can even spot the villages of Les Moulins, Château-d'Œx and the famous hill with the church. This hut is very popular among all winter-nature lovers and offers a wide range of invigorating dishes! Its large terrace allows you to enjoy the sunshine. On the way back, you first walk slightly downhill before returning to the starting point through forests and across pastures.
