Description of the route

from the Elisabetta Soldini refuge take the dirt road which descends, crossed in certain points by the trail, until the plateau of Lago Combal; once you have completely crossed the plateau, shortly before a bridge you’ll see the trail entrance on the right. This ascends, among shrubs, until reaching the pastures above ruins of the Arp Vielle Inferiore summer pasture; then continue to climb, passing the Arp Vielle Superiore summer pasture, until reaching a rocky slope. There the trail descends slightly, crosses pastures and flanks two alpine lakes to reach some ski slopes and finally the Maison Vielle refuge. From there take the dirt road which heads towards the right and, after a few minutes, you’ll find the trail on the left which, descending among ski slopes, reaches Plan Checrouit; it then leads to the cable car departure point, behind this is the trail that descends with various hairpin turns to reach the ski slope below. Descend the slope for a short distance and then take the dirt road that enters the wood, near the first hairpin turn take the trail on the left which descends to reach the village of Dolonne (the last short part is on a paved road). Cross the village passing in the centre alleys and then take the paved road which leads to Courmayeur in a few minutes.
