Combloux village and its ski area "Les Portes du Mont Blanc" offers already a large choice of alpine disciplines... And now they are going one step (or slide!) further by offering to mountain fanatics new ski touring routes!

- La Crève Cœur (5.8km long, 784m ascents)
From the Bouchet car park, go up along the "Pinson" ski run. Cross the road and continue up the "Baghera" ski slope before joining the snowshoeing track under Beauregard chairlift. At the crossroads, turn right for a beautiful climb in the forest before crossing two slopes. Once back in the forest, keep going upwards until you reach the Plaine Joux plateau, then climb along the slope. Your are at La Croix panoramic viewpoint. Continue until you reach the top of Pertuis chairlift. Your are at the highest point of Combloux. Enjoy the stunning panorama including a spectacular view of Mont Blanc before going back down by one of Combloux ski slopes.

When to go? All day long...from the slopes opening to their closing.

And to go back down? Several slopes possible: the blue slope 'La Croix' for a last forest journey, the red run 'Les Ambourzalles' for sliding pleasure, or if you are playful, you could also be tempted by the 'Blaireau' black slope.....or even the Boarder cross!

The presence of a ski instructor or a mountain guide is highly recommended, particularly when considering an excursion into an 'off-piste' area.
Pay close attention to the snow conditions and weather forecasts. Do not forget to take with you an avalanche transceiver (Arva in french), a snow shovel and a probe. Before going, tell someone where you are planning to go. In mountain, each detail has its own importance.
