Snowshoeing Trek: Les Chalets de la Fullie
Mairie - Centre du village, 73630, École
From 01/12 to 15/04.
A beautiful snowshoeing trek that will take you below the slopes of Mont Colombier for some lovely views.
From the centre of the village of Ecole, leave the main road and enter a narrow street to the right of the town hall. At the intersection, turn right and follow the long path, which crosses the woods of La Fullie and leads to a ridge, then passes the Chapel Saint-Bernard, which is dedicated to St-Bernard de Menthon, the patron saint of mountaineers. Feel free to enter and leave a note in the guestbook. Continue South-Southwest on the GR 96 by the long ridge trail that allows you to admire the peaks of Bauges (Pécloz, Dent d'Arclusaz, Mont Colombier). Continue through the woods until you reach the mountain pastures of La Fullie, close to the pass of the same name. In a few minutes, you will cross the mountain pastures of La Fullie to reach the Chalets (1,380 m.) on the right, where you can enjoy a magnificent view of the surrounding peaks. You can return by the same route. This walk is also accessible from Aillon-le-Jeune.
