From the ski bus stop, go up the street to the last houses, turn right into the forest. At the crossroads "Le Golet", turn right towards "Plan du Drayon". At this crossroads, turn right and descend in the direction of "Chemin de la Peignière" then join the road to the hamlets of Planay and Mond-Rond (1 km, 15 min). You can then use the skibus shuttle to return.

When Savoy became French in 1860, a free zone, exempt from taxes, was created. The border of this area was located in the heart of Val d'Arly. The inhabitants then organized a vast smuggling network. Smugglers, to divert customs officials, used certain tricks such as inverting the soles of their shoes to simulate the opposite direction of movement or using strings to discreetly pull the goods.

Opening period

From 15/12 to 15/04.
