A cross-country trail in Haute Maurienne Vanoise-style with a regular climb, great views and a lovely singletrack descent.


The path climbs with a 400-metre elevation gain up to Arponts plateau which offers a superb view: Mont Cenis and the Italian border opposite and, on your right (as you reach the plateau), some of the highest Vanoise peaks, including Dent Parrachée, and a bird's-eye view of the village of Aussois. Definitely worth the climb, and now it's downhill all the way, following a section of the Evita-Carnéa Enduro trail back down to Aussois.

Period of opening

From 01/05 to 01/11.

Subject to favorable snow and weather conditions.
