Ski touring

The Trient valley has several mountains suitable for ski touring. Skiers are strongly recommended to use the services of a mountain guide.

Chaulée "Touring track powered by Movement"

“La Chaulée” is a permanent ski touring route that was created in 2007 by the Alpiniski team. For its 10th anniversary, the track has been restructured and is now joining the “Touring Tracks” powered by Mouvement, free ski company.

From the place called "Les Peutex" on the top of Les Marécottes, “La Chaulée” joins the foot of the Golette pass, facing the Grand Combin and Mont Blanc, for a total elevation of more than 1000 meters. A mid-way escape leads to La Creusaz's panoramic restaurant at 1,777 meters above sea level where a pasta party is organized every Friday night during the winter season.

 The entire track course is off-piste, with the exception of a few clearly-marked traverses, but these can be used for the descent. Information about the state of the track in available on www.telemarecottes.ch. The touring track will be closed in case of danger.

This route can provide a relaxing outing or some hard exercise, and is open to anyone with touring skis. The first section is also suitable for snowshoes.
