Description

This short section links La Châble with the Mont Fort Hut using the Verbier lifts.

There are a few ways of reaching the Mont Fort Hut.

The marked route involves the fewest lifts.

It goes via Verbier, then les Ruinettes to Col des Vaux.

It then takes a descending leftwards traverse to the hut, involving a little side stepping or a small amount of skinning. Alternatively if you want a bit more skiing take the lifts to Attelas and cruise down the pistes to La Chaux before taking the lift to Col des Gentianes, descending the pistes to the west before taking a track to the hut.

This involves possibly less effort and is a better choice in bad visibility as you don't leave the pistes.
