Sport Hiking : the Christomet via the Frasses and the Mont Platard Megève


Departing from Megève (74120)
Average length : 03h30
Total elevation gain : 709m
Vertical drop : 709m
Distance : 9.8km
Signed walking trail
Animals allowed

Begin by car in the direction of the Ball Trap (4km) and park nearby.

Follow the signs to Christomet until you reach Mont Platard along a pleasant and wide path, then go down through the woods and pastures. Just before reaching the Mont Platard, a rather steeper descent, take the path immediately on your right, still following the Christomet direction. This part of the path is steep until you reach Covagnet. Then it becomes gentler until meeting the arrival point of the Christomet chairlift, the highest point of the hike.

Continue the itinerary heading northwards by following the path on the ridge in the direction of Eperon, where you can admire the view over Croisse-Baulet. At the first intersection take the path lower down on the right in the direction of Megève via the Frasses, the path leading through open grasslands (Black Grouse zone) or follow the Black Grouse Trail in reverse that will take you to the Chalet des Frasses.

Return to the car in 20 minutes by following the tarmac road until you reach the Chalet du Christomet, or take the path on the left that brings you to the arrival point of the Jaillet cable car (restaurant), which will take you back down to Megève.
