Trottinettes à Champex-Lac


In summer, the Champex-Lac resort offers scooter rides using the Breya chairlift. The beginning of the course involves relatively difficult passages, which requires a minimum age of 12 years.

The route follows a mountain pasture route and overlooks the Rhone Valley and Lake Geneva.

Route


Map


The 6.7 km route follows the same path as the sledge run in winter, with the exception of the terminal part from the Arpette relay. Even if the path follows small gravel or dirt roads, it should be remembered that the first part of the descent has difficult sections due to steep slopes on rocky ground. As soon as you arrive at the bottom of the pretty and wild val d’Arpette, the track becomes slightly sloping and in good condition.
It takes about 1 hour to complete.
