Ski Touring : Veysonnaz - Thyon

Created in winter 2018-19, this itinerary is marked in yellow and black, especially for ski touring. The way up runs outside of the ski runs in order to avoid accidents with the downhill skiers. The ski tourers are, however, requested to come back down via the ski runs in order to protect the forest and its dwellers. 

This trail is not adapted to beginners, the track varies between the chalets and the forest.

Departure at 250 m. from Veysonnaz Tourisme office, in the beginning of the route des Mayens-de-l'Ours, after the car park.
