Accessibility: shuttle, village stop
Departure: Les Biolles district (departure on snow)

From the ski bus stop near the Church, take the main street of the village for 200 m, then turn left into rue de la mini-market (Sherpa) in the direction of Biolles. Arrived at the crow's feet, turn left and continue until the bend. In it take a right towards the cabin of the Biolles ski lift. Pass by the chalet and then climb in the direction of the Verdette ski lift. Pass to the left of the ski lift and enter the Faÿ wood to make the loop. Return to Biolles and the village by the same route as the outward journey.

The télé-traîneau, a tracked vehicle still visible at the foot of the Reguet piste in the village center, is the station's first ski lift. Dating from 1937, it could transport 20 people with their skis to the top of the Reguet in 20 minutes. It was replaced in 1948 by a new ski lift device "the ski lift". The télé-traîneau is a unique model in France.
