Parcours de Vounetse - La Scie
TEMPORARILY CLOSED DUE TO AVALANCHE DANGER
Waymarked path from the exit from the cable car at the top of Vounetse. Admire the Dents Vertes mountain chain on your right as you descend. Take the time to admire the magnificent Gros Brun summit opposite you.
A mainly downward path from the top station of the Charmey cable car. As you leave the cable car station, head south along the ski run towards the Dents Vertes mountain chain.
When you reach the pass (alt. 1,565m) at the foot of the Dent de Vounetse, follow the waymarks along the Rio de Tissineva. As you descend to the east of Vounetse, you will recognise the main peaks in the Dents Vertes mountain chain: the Dent de Vounetse (1,812 m) and the Tour Ronde (1,806 m). The path passes below the «Tissiniva Derrey» chalet and continues into a wild valley of alternating pasture and forest, guarded by its severe, tall sentinels – the Vanil d’Arpille (2,084m), Gros Brun (2,104m), the Pointe de Balachaux (1,976m) and Patraflon (1,915m). As you emerge from a magical forest, the path forks to the north west, below the Chalet de la Gissetta (1,318 m) to join «La Scie» on the hillside, the starting point for the chair lift that will take you back to Vounetse.
The path is easy and fully accessible for families, the change in altitude along the route is around 400 m. Once you reach the end of the path, you can either return to your starting point using the chair lift or continue your walk towards Charmey, La Berra or Schwarzsee."
This unprepared itinerary is marked. You take this trail at your own risk.
