Bisse du Milieu and Bisse Vieux

The Bisse du Milieu, which carries water in summer, passes through the centre of the resort of Haute-Nendaz and irrigates the Bleusy area and its raspberry and strawberry fields. It crosses a spruce forest which was partially destroyed by Hurricane Viviane in 1990. The Bisse Vieux threads its way beneath the shade of gray alders, plunges into a dark spruce forest, crosses a rocky ridge where it drops 5 meters and irrigates meadows fragrant with wild thyme and oregano.
