Trail in The Portes du Soleil
Between France and Switzerland, on the crests of the Chablais, take pleasure in running in the mountains with 48 marked trails.
The 48 permanent trails, which start from one of the 23 ski lifts open in the summer, allow you to learn how to run in the mountains in complete safety. The lifts make it possible to learn trail running while avoiding the big climbs or to get rid of the difference in altitude on the way down!
Ground markings with pictograms will allow each runner to follow his path easily. More than 1,700 pictograms and a sign every 250 m or so will ensure that runners can find their way around easily.
