- Nordic ski tour outing
You are at 2100m above sea level and on this large plateau of lakes, explore the peaceful expanses where skiers cannot gain access with their skis, only via hiking. Popular in the summer, the hiking lakes offer equally great sensations in winter. This is the only time of the year where you can cross! Take your time: there are so many panoramas to observe, along the ridges ... It is also an opportunity to optimise your technique and enjoyment of nature.

An ever changing course
"We love this change of scenery and find ourselves in this dream setting. From one day to another, the mountain is never the same. Snow powder or crust, play of shadows and a rainbow of colours, clouds and wind, the mountain changes and is lived daily."
