Description

Difficult ski touring itinerary, open on Tuesday evenings (depending on snow conditions), from the departure of the cable car to the Roc d'Orsay.

Every Tuesday evening, from the closing of the slopes until 10pm, choose ski touring in complete safety in the Villars sector. This route via the Bouquetins piste is the most direct and also the steepest. The last ascent is off the marked trail and passes under the cable car. Go directly to the top of the Roc d'Orsay avoiding Bretaye. For the return journey, take the blue route down via Bretaye and the Col-de-Soud. Good snow conditions are guaranteed for most of the winter thanks to artificial snow.

Practical Information

SAFETY & RECOMMENDATIONS : - This itinerary is only accessible on Tuesday evenings during the winter season and depending on snow conditions. - Access is authorised from the closing of the slopes at 4.30pm until 10pm (last descent at 9.45pm). - From 10pm, the snow groomer starts its work on this sector. - Access to the slope by climbing the stairs to the start of the Roc d'Orsay gondola. - It is compulsory to wear a headlamp as the piste is not lit. PARKING : - A large car park (free at night) is available at the start of the cable car.
