Itinerary for snowshoeing : Saint Guerin
Station, 73640, Sainte-Foy-Tarentaise
From 01/11 to 30/04. Subject to snow conditions.
Itinerary of high difficulty and marked out from the resort (Notre-Dame-de-Bonconseil chapel). Very nice itinerary to reach the St Guérin chapel, just above the Marquise chairlift. Map available at the Tourist Office.
Take the tarmac road for about 150m. After the flat area in front of the chalets, put on your snowshoes. Cross the ski slope, paying attention to the skiers. Continue up a gentle slope towards the hamlet of Planay above. At the end of the forest, admire the panorama of the Tarentaise valley. Enter the village and after a few houses, take the wide and steep RIGHT path away from the village. When you reach a few chalets, turn LEFT. At the next fork in the road, turn RIGHT in the direction of the climb. At the top, you arrive at the departure of the Marquise chairlift, enjoy an exceptional panorama and a snack concocted by your favourite mountain restaurant. On the right is the St Guérin chapel. Return by the same route.
