DON’T MISS!

Accessible from the age of 4, a 10-minute walk from the funicular arrival station (3,400 metres).
We recommend you dress up warm and wear suitable footwear.

HIKING AREAS

DO YOU KNOW THE CONDITIONS OF ACCESS TO THE MARKED ROUTES?

6 PRACTICAL TIPS FOR YOUR WALKS

1 – You must take note of the safety rules and recommendations sign posted at the start of each track.

2- It is forbidden to use the trails between 4pm and 9.30am so as not to disturb the work of the slope groomers and to not put anyone in danger due to the winch cables.

3 – Once the slopes are closed and the ski area is closed, access to pedestrians, hikers and skiers is strictly prohibited in accordance with the municipal by-law relative to safety on the slopes.

4 – These uphill itineraries are not ski slopes.
They are neither controlled nor protected by the slope patrol.
The use of these itineraries is your own personal responsibility.
It is imperative that users inform themselves on the weather and snow conditions as well as the avalanche risk level.

5- Access to marked routes and downhill slopes is strictly forbidden during avalanche triggering opérations.

6 – Any descent on the ski slopes must take place during the opening hours of the ski area.

AN ENCHANTING WORLD AT AN ALTITUDE OF 3,200 METRES

ICE CAVE

Stop off at 3,200 metres to pay a visit to the ice cave. Carved out 30 metres beneath the glacier by 2 high-mountain guides, discover ice sculptures that will both amaze and surprise you. It would be a real shame not to leave enough time to visit! You can buy your ticket on site or from the skipass sales desks.
It’s just 6€ per adult and 5€ per child.
