Snowshoes - Les Chaux - Taveyanne - Combe du Scex

Easy to moderate snowshoe trail in the bucolic setting of the forest of Sodoleuvre and the snow-covered Alpine meadows of Taveyanne.

Les Chaux - Taveyanne - Combe du Scex

After arriving at the top of the cable car, turn left, carefully cross the ski run, and pass the Swiss Ski School on the right-hand side; at the start of the cross-country ski track to Taveyanne, enter the forest on the left and head downhill until you reach a forest track. Continue on it for about 200 metres, then turn right and head downhill to Le Luissalet.
Head downhill through the forest for about 300 metres. When you reach the junction with another trail, turn right and follow this trail to the Alpine meadows at Taveyanne. Continue onward to the hamlet; head back for about 2 kilometres and then along the hillside (Chemin des Raies) to the ski run (passing under the chair lift). Carefully cross the 4 ski runs and climb the little knoll to your left. Enter the forest and continue downhill for 100 metres to the car park (option: take the Gryon shuttle down to the Combe du Scex stop).
