Possibility to reach the village of Crest-Voland by taking route n ° 7. TO KNOW : The Crest-Voland Cohennoz ski resort was born in 1951 with the construction by pioneers of the village and the surroundings of the 1st ski lift: the Lachat (replaced in 1999 by a chairlift). Setting up a station in this isolated corner was a bit of a gamble because road access was difficult, and there was then only one hotel and a ski shop. But at that time mountain agriculture was in crisis and the villages were depopulated. Thanks to the relentlessness of the mountaineers, the abundant snow and the development of skiing, the resort developed and tourism became the main activity.
