Dominated by majestic summits, the Upper Val de Bagnes offers fantastic opportunities for winter sports enthusiasts.
Adorned in white, Switzerland’s second-biggest protected area has unexpected discoveries in store for nature lovers. While marmots may be in their winter quarters, you might come across mountain goats or chamois, out and about in the alpine vastness. An idyllic route awaits cross-country skiers by the charming hamlet of Plamproz. Do you prefer cross-country skis or snowshoes? The forest track that starts out between Lourtier and Fionnay was made for you! It will lead you straight to the Brunet hut, where you can enjoy a delicious cheese fondue. Head upwards to the Capucins with skins on your skis, tackle the ascent of Mont Rogneux, or make your way to the Panossière hut (open from March onwards) via the Avouillons pass; whatever you choose, an adventure awaits you. The region’s numerous icefalls are an attractive alternative for people drawn to the thrill of climbing them.
