Ski touring - Villars - Roc d'Orsay - Red route

Roc d'Orsay cablecar - Les Bouquetins slope - Roc d'Orsay

Difficult ski touring itinerary, open on Tuesday evening from the departure of the gondola lift to Roc d'Orsay.

Every Tuesday evening as soon as the downhill ski pistes have closed and until 10 pm you can safely use your touring skis throughout the Villars area.

The Bouquetins trail is much more direct but also steeper. The last ascent is off the marked trail and passes under the gondola lift. A difficult level ski touring itinerary, accessible only on Tuesday evenings, linking the departure of the gondola to Roc d'Orsay.

You are advised to return to the village using the blue piste via Bretaye and Col-de-Soud. Good snow conditions are guaranteed for most of the winter, thanks to artificial snow-making machines.
