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!

- Le Plan des Dames (4.5km long, 550m ascents)
From "La Cry" bus stop, reach Cuchet following the path in front of the Alpen Valley Hotel. Pass by "le Chalet de la Vieille" then climb in the forest until the top of Beauregard chairlift. A new part in forest to cross a little clearing will lead you to the top of La Ravine chairlift. After crossing the slope, continue up in the forest to reach the top of Pertuis chairlift, with one of the most stunning panorama on the Aravis, the Fiz and the Mont-Blanc mountain ranges.

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!

Where can I rent touring skis ?

What if I am a beginner?
Contact the French Ski School (ESF) to discover the joys of ski touring with a professional at your side.

Want to go higher or further? Ski touring pass 13€.
One way up Beauregard, Pertuis and Jouty chairlifts to reach Croisse-Baulet, an off-piste, not secured and not marked itinerary.

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.

Even if the Plan des Dames itinerary is marked, secured and in an area where the avalanche risk is non-existent, make sure you have all the necessary equipment in your backpack. When you are climbing along ski slopes, please stick to the right hand side, and be aware of those around you.
