Itineraries freeride

The 4 Vallées ski domain offers, to those confirmed skiers, some marked high altitude itineraries (black and yellow posts) to go off the beaten track.

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).




 Plan-du-Fou 2430 m - Les Fontaines 2130 m

Prepared run traverse short and regular slope, good snow conditions. Magnificent view over the mountains and the Rhone Valley. View available thanks to the webcam




 Col des Gentianes 2950 m - Tortin 2050 m

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

Beginning traverse difficult. First part very steep, second part more accessible. Beautiful view of the Valley of Nendaz.


 Mont Gelé

Mont Gelé 3023 m - Cabane Mt-Fort 2457 m / Tortin 2050 m

Extremely steep, scattered rocks, be careful in spring, allow ice to melt. The end of this itinerary joins that of the Gentianes.


Vallon d'Arby


 Lac des Vaux 2543 m - La Tzoumaz 1500 m

Beginning of the itinerary is difficult. Far from any lifts. This itinerary is not frequently used, descents through charming forests. You’ll feel like you are alone in the world, privileged


 Col des Mines


 Lac des Vaux 2543 m - Plan du Loup 1897 m

Beginning of itinerary difficult (same beginning as Vallon d’Arbi). Superb view over Verbier.
