Description

Come and join me for this superb snowshoe loop facing Mont Blanc, in Haute-Savoie.

Our itinerary takes place under the cliffs of the Fiz massif and faces the Mont Blanc massif. In the middle of a snowy setting, it will offer you some exceptional views of the Mont-Blanc.

If there is not enough snow, we will make a longer hiking tour.

Program

Departure and appointment is at the Plaine-Joux resort. From the parking lot we follow a forest road in the direction of Lac Vert. The lake is totally frozen and surrounded by a pine forest covered by a thick white coat. It is a place of total tranquility!

We then go up towards the Chatelet d'Ayères refuge where we follow in the direction of the Mollays. The break is well deserved at the Mollays chalets. The view is clear on the surrounding massifs and on the Mont Blanc. Stuck between the Pormenaz ridge and the Rochers des Fiz, the place is magnificent and not very crowded. 

After the picnic we continue in the direction of Barmus. The descent and the return to the parking lot is along the slopes, staying in the snowshoe area.

The duration of the route is 3 to 4 hours, it can vary depending on the quantity and quality of the snow.
