45 uphill turns is pretty charming, isn't it? Behind this figure is a more welcoming itinerary than it seems on the first slopes of the impressive Mont Blanc massif.


Analysing terrain data

2 - 3










The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs, etc) but only the consequences of the skier falling.

Low Exposure (E1): Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.

Medium Exposure (E2): As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

High Exposure (E3): In case of a fall, death is highly likely.

Extreme Exposure (E4): In case of a fall, the skier faces certain death.


This labelled itinerary, at the "La Trapette" place, is aimed in particular at ski touring enthusiasts. Easy to access (starting from the Grands-Montets station), with a height difference of 730m, in the heart of a forest of spruces and larch trees, this course with 45 bends will bring you back on a regular slope on the top of the Pierre à Ric (Plan Joran restaurant). Be careful! Be careful! This practice site is a space shared with downhill skiers in the famous Lognan Slope Corridors.<br/><br/>For more information: <a href="https://skitouring.decathlon.fr" target="_blank">skitouring.decathlon.fr</a>
