Cross-country skiing in Champex-Lac (12 km)
It’s an area known to nature lovers as “little Canada”: Champex-Lac. This picturesque village nestles around a beautiful mountain lake and offers cross-country skiers a superb setting for their sport. A 12-kilometre trail with various circuits for every skill level takes in the three villages Champex d’En Bas, Champex d’En Haut and Champex-Lac. The trail winds its way through magnificent woods and, if conditions permit, even across the frozen lake. And this all against the backdrop of the majestic Grand-Combin.
