In the Plan Maison area (which can be reached by cable car and/or gondola from the village), there are two itineraries (marked, paved and safe) which are very scenic and all with an unfaltering view of the Matterhorn. The first route is approximately 4.5 km long and runs along the left side of the Plan Maison chairlift (2,500 m), arriving at the Teodulo refuge.
A longer route (6 km), again from Plan Maison, leads to the Cime Bianche Laghi station (2,812 m), at the start of the Plateau Rosà cable car. Walking time: two to three hours.
In Valtournenche, at Plan Bois (follow the signs for the Foyer des Guides restaurant), there is an off-piste route through the beech forests, not signposted, which leads to the upper part of the ski resort, in the Baracon area. (Please inquire in advance at the ticket office about the practicability of the route).
PLEASE NOTE: the concessionaire and the operator of the ski lifts are not responsible for any accidents that may occur on off-piste routes served by ski lifts. Ski mountaineers must be equipped with appropriate electronic systems to ensure rescue if the weather and snow conditions are such that there is a clear risk of avalanches.
For ski mountaineering trips off-piste or on untrodden routes, it is advisable to rely on the Cervino Mountain Guides.
