Snowshoeing treks 'La Chartreuse - Lourdens'

- Departure/Arrival
- Point of interest
Circuit n° 1
  • La chartreuse d'Aillon
The starting point is from above the resort, after the Correrie farm. It is a loop circuit where most of the slope follows the summer route The North-East/South-West orientation allows you to enjoy plenty of sunshine all along the trail.
Start off at the bend located at the descriptive sign on the route, altitude 970 m.
Going up along the stream, you arrive in front of Chartreuse d'Aillon which deserves a detour (inquire for the opening hours).
Then the route goes along the road that leads to Praz Gelaz (meaning "pre-frozen" in Savoyard dialect). You will pass a forest house where you can take a break, then you arrive at an intersection.
Turn left towards “Lourdens” and continue up to the carpark at Muret. At the signpost marked “Lourdens 40” go down into the undergrowth and after a few dozen meters you will reach the edge of a meadow. You can go back downhill along the edge of the forest. Gradually get back to the road. Again pass in front of Chartreuse d'Aillon to make your way in the opposite direction up to the starting point.
When going downhill, if the weather or snow conditions are not good, when you arrive at the meadow, you can take a shortcut to reach the road directly. To do this, just go straight down to the junction on the same route you took to come up.
From 19/12 to 30/04.
