An amazing freeride/Downhill track from Chandolin to Sierre !

1) Let's begin with a little walk from the chairlift of Tsapé to the top of Illsee pass (20 minutes)
2) Start of the trail : the first part is really steep, rocky and very technical. It ends on the barrage of Illsee (Gorgeous view at this point)
3) Then, the trail is a little less sketchy but still technical with some challenging turns.
4) The entrance of the forest is just a pure pleasure ! Soft ground, great speed and magical slippery turns !

Access Info

Leave your car just after the end of the highway (Highway exit Sierre-est).
Than take the bus to reach the village of Chandolin and ask for the stop "Chandolin télésiège". You'll be dropped in front of the chairlift.
Take the chairlift to reach the beginning of the trail (10 CHF).

IMPORTANT : The trail takes approximatively 2h30.
