We suggest you to check if the path is open and has been groomed and the avalanche risk

Easy route on groomed snow that connects two characteristic villages of the Matterhorn valley.

Description of the route

The route is groomed across the entire width of the farm road, therefore clearly visible, and can also be followed without snowshoes. In the event of snowfall, it is advisable to check whether the route has been groomed and whether it is practicable with après-ski footwear. In certain periods, with the rise in temperatures and the re-freezing at night, crampons can be useful.

From the arrival of the Chamois cable car, continue on the road that passes under the Town Hall, cross the entire village, cross the bridge and continue to the right, on the easy walk that connects the village with La Magdeleine.
You will pass near the Trinity chapel and admire the characteristic village of Suisse from above.
The path ends shortly after the mountain pasture.

N.B. The route can also be followed starting from La Magdeleine towards Chamois:

At the first hairpin bend beyond the church of La Magdeleine, in the hamlet of Vieu, turn left, follow the signs for Chamois and continue until the road ends.
The car parks adjacent to the starting point of the path are subject to a fee: three blue columns are available for issuing tickets (coins or easypark app only): €6.00 from 8.00am  to 5.30pm.
