Description Itinerary's start


Greppon Blanc 2700 m - Prapero 1540 m

Far from any lifts. One of the most impressive itineraries by its length, its variation in altitude, and its far from everything aspect. Return to the lift system by bus CHF 5.-  (Prapero - Les Masses at 11.00/12.00/13.00/14.00/15.00*    * until Les Collons).

Physically demanding, very long run. This fabulous descent of 3,5 km will turn your thighs as well as your moral to steel.




 Col de Chassoure 2740 m - Tortin 2050 m

Vallon d'Arby
