Winter hikes - Rochegrise - Le Golf

Perfect for lovers of snowy landscapes, this delightful winter walk from Villars via Verneyre to the golf course has breathtaking views.

Villars (Rochegrise) - La Verneyre- Le Golf

Starting from Villars, on the Col de la Croix road, you'll share this spectacular walk with skiers and snowshoers. After walking through a forest for a few hundred metres, you'll be able to admire the view of the Vaudois Alps and Mont Blanc. Once you get to the Verneyre mountain hut, you can stop for something to eat, then continue on in the direction of Col de La Croix. Then fork off in the direction of the Golf Course, under the Rasse chairlift. Have a well-deserved rest on the golf club terrace and admire the view, then return to Villars either by train (Golf stop) or back the way you came. You can retrace your steps back to the starting point at any time during this walk.
