Deux nouveaux itinéraires

Nouveau parcours tracé et balisé sur le domaine d’Abondance avec la montée depuis le village jusqu’à la pointe des Follys et son panorama magnifique sur les Dents du Midi et le Léman. Serpentant entre alpages et forêts, l’itinéraire allie confort et liberté jusqu’au sommet du domaine skiable.

Difficulté : 744 m de dénivelé +, niveau rouge.

Lorsque la télécabine est ouverte, il est possible de rejoindre le deuxième tronçon. En lisière de forêt, cet itinéraire court et régulier, surplombe la vallée d’Abondance. Au départ de l’arrivée du télécabine jusqu’à la pointe des Follys, il permet une ascension plus accessible et une bonne fiabilité d’enneigement naturel.

Difficulté : 294 m de dénivelé +, niveau vert.
