Parcours de l’Intermédiaire

The snowshoe trail «Parcours de l’Intermédiaire», which begins above Charmey, offers a route in the heart of the mountains through forests, rivers and clearings. From the path, you can admire the Dents Vertes, which overlook the Charmey ski area.
This easy snowshoe loop hike begins above Charmey at the midway cable car station. There you take the route that crosses the forest and heads down to the Les Pâquiers chalet. This place offers a magnificent view over the village of Charmey and the valley. Climb back up towards the La Chéta chalet. Just after you leave the forest, turn left and head towards the Chalet des Vieilles Ciernes.

From the path, you can admire the Dents Vertes, which overlook the Charmey ski area. Then walk to the final chalet on the route, the Gros Ganet. Cross the ski run and follow the route. The path is more undulating in this section. Walk alongside the ski run and you reach again the cable car station.

This is an ideal path for people who want to walk in snowshoes without necessarily taking the high mountain paths or getting too far from civilisation. The route offers a magnificent view over the Dents Vertes massif.
