Start your trip at the sports center of Haute-Nendaz to join Tracouet by following the signs VTT 132. Go in direction of Tsamandon and follow the road of Crettaux. After 500m, leave this road to take the forest path on your left. Follow this path to Prarion and continue your climb through the Balavaud meadow and its famous larches. Your climb continues to the site of Tracouet and its Black Lake. At the summit of Tracouet, enjoy the beautiful landscape and the restaurant to relax before starting a fairly sporty descent indicated by the signs VTT 133. Join the right of the chairlift and follow the main path. At the intersection, continue straight towards Sofleu. Your route continues on the main path and, after a slight climb, enjoy a final well deserved descent to the station.
