Description

It is very easy to reach the Pointe d'Angolon. Simply take the Chamossière chairlift and once at the top turn left across a few rocks and follow a cable along the ridge up 90 vertical meters to reach the summit. Before you descend, take the time to enjoy the magnificent panorama including splendid views of Lake Geneva, the peaks of Chablais, those of the Upper Giffre and Mont Blanc. Ski the N and NE facing slopes all the way down towards the lake at the foot of the mountain.
