Ideal from July-October, snow is always a possibility, this is a high alpine route!

This Route start at Les Violettes (2220m) and climbs to La Plaine Morte (2980m can also be done by Gondola) then ride around the Glacier to Cabane du Wildstrubel where you can get some great food. The trail descends to the Rawyl pass and flows through the Plan des Roses to lake Tseuzier. You then follow the alpine waterway bisse d'Ayent all the way down till it merges into the bisse de Claveau which end just above Sion (the local capital) with a short descent that finishes by the terrace of the local brewery.

This route is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!
