How to get there
Aosta Est highway exit. Take the road for Gran San Bernardo, turn right towards Valpelline and, after several km, turn left for Doues. Cross the town and continue as long as the road is clear of snow, usually to the town of Proseille.
Sparse woods, wide slopes and a magnificent basin make this tour unique. This route is also accessible in May or the beginning of June when the road is open to the Champillon mountain pastures.
