A technical but fun trail starting at Mélezet gondola lift.

36- Enduro - Red - La Sapinette La Norma


Departing from La Norma (73500)
Average length : 00h40
Vertical drop : 640m
Signed walking trail

You get to the start via a track of about 1 km, then find yourself on a singletrack path which is steep in places. The end part is more fun, so you can let go of the brakes a bit and enjoy yourself!
Why the name? The area used to be dotted with small fir trees ("sapinettes"), but that was before the 2017 avalanche. Pity...

Departs from: top of Mélezet gondola lift.

Altitude max : 1996m
Vertical drop : 640m
