RED route no. 21 outward and return from the Chalet Nordique Pré Loubet in Puy Saint Vincent

Follow the Trail Station markers and the snowshoe route markers.

This is a new route from the Nordic Chalet as it will take you all the way to the summit of Les Têtes and back! The first part to the edge of the Col de la Pousterle is fairly easy. Then things get more complicated: technical singles and steep sections alternate until you reach 2044m, the highest point of the route! The views are splendid, but they have to be earned! Then retrace your tracks down to the chalet, where the slides are guaranteed...

This route is also perfectly suited to snowshoe trekking and is recommended!

This is an area where several activities coexist: trail running, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, mushing... Please respect each other's practices!
