Sport Ski mountaineering route "Les Crêtes" Aillon-le-Jeune


Departing from Aillon-le-Jeune (73340)
Average length : 02h30
Distance : 8km
Signed walking trail

The course is very pleasant, especially on fresh snow and remains a relatively easy route. The slightly steeper sections are through woodland and only a few metres in length. Nevertheless, watch out for any "tannes" (chasms) that you might come across along the way! Be careful in foggy conditions as direction-finding above the forest can be a little tricky.
