Ski touring - Roc d'Orsay

Villars - les Bouquetins - Roc d’Orsay

A short but steep route up to Roc d’Orsay.

This route starts at the valley station of the Roc d’Orsay gondola lift. Follow the pylons for the first kilometre.

Depending on snow conditions, you may have to remove your skis to cross a road or two. Then follow the Piste des Bouquetins for a short while before turning left towards Route des Tailles. Cross the road and continue on your way to Roc d’Orsay. Well-known among regulars, this section requires extra caution in icy conditions.

Enjoy a break at the Roc d’Orsay restaurant before skiing back down to Villars.
