This is an alpine trail and not a bike park therefore you might cross paths with a few hikers. Enjoy your day by respecting the nature and those around you.
It can get crowded during peak season.

ITA: Dopo una buona colazione nella via centrale di Courmayeur si imbocca il sentiero che risalendo le piste da discesa della Val Veny ci porta fino in località Courba Dzeleuna (1500mt), valico tra i due versanti del comprensorio sciistico di Courmayer.
Un piccolo tratto di saliscendi ci accompagnerà fino a raggiungere il rifugio Maison Vieille (1950mt), dove avremo la possibilità di placare l'appetito con ottimi piatti locali. Nuovamente in sella si parte alla volta della piscina alpina riscaldata di Plan Checrouit per trascorrere qualche momento di relax immersi (letteralmente) in un panorama splendido.
Un giro che richiede una media preparazione fisica visti i dislivelli in gioco, ma che si presta naturalmente ad essere fatto in e-bike data la facilità tecnica del percorso. Ottimo da fare in compagnia se si cerca qualcosa di diverso dalla solita giornata in mtb.
Periodo ideale: alta stagione estiva in base all'apertura di rifugio e piscina.

Rendez-vous in the center of Courmayeur ‘cause you can’t start the day without a good breakfast!
We leave town on the path that heads north along the Val Veny reaching the top of the winter skiing area of Courmayeur, Courba Dzeleuna (1500mt).
A stretch of ups and downs will lead us to Maison Vieille hut (1950 mt.), where we will stop for a well deserved lunch. Back on the saddle, we headtowards our final destination, Plan Checrouit’s alpine swimming pool wherewe can finally relax soaking in its warm waters while being amazed by the
breathtaking view.
This ride requires a medium physical preparation because of the height differences but, given the technical ease of the route, it’s suitable for e-bikes. Great alternative for a day out on your mtb with your friends.
When: peak summer season (based on the opening of refuge and swimming
pool)
