Enduro 07 (advanced) Fontanet - La Chaux

Sport, Cycling sports, Enduro itinerary in Verbier Station

6.0 km
  • This trail leads from Fontanet to the legendary Mont-Fort mountain hut via a technically and physically demanding alpine path. The break at the mountain hut and ensuing downhill section ensure it’s well worth the effort.

  • From Fontanet cable car mountain station (check the opening hours before heading out), take the picturesque trail along the ridge towards Mont Gelé. Continue past the arrival station of the “La Chaux 2” ski lift. From there, a flat but highly technical path will take you across a long stretch of scree to the Mont-Fort mountain hut. From the mountain hut, the trail broadens out and takes you down towards the meandering river (this is a busy area of the route, so moderate your speed).

    The final section of the route is one of the region’s highlights, taking you on an idyllic trail that follows a magnificent alpine stream to La Chaux. In La Chaux, you can continue onto Route 6 and return to Les Ruinettes, or head down to Le Châble via Route 3 (beginners), Route 5 (advanced) or Route 11 (expert).
