BALCONS DE VAL - 20KM 1000M D+
Here is a race to get started in trail running and enjoy the sceneries. Odlo High Trail Vanoise, les Balcons, is 20 K long with an uphill climb of 1000 meters. The hardest part being the very first climb from the bottom of the resort, up to the lake of Ouillette passing by the Arsellaz farm, a little jewel nested in the middle of an alpine meadow. All along the trail that goes up, you will enjoy a stunning bird’s eye view over the village of Val d’Isère. Once you will have completed a loop around the lake, you will run down to the village on the Lavancher trail that will take you to the Fornet hamlet on the North balcony trail. There you will go on the Balcony path, go to the Crêt , then through the Balme forest and eventually turn back to the resort.
