After the departure from Champoluc, we will go uphill toward Antagnod, a small village where we’ll enjoy a splendid panoramic view of Val d'Ayas; once there, the almost 20km of descent will make us catch our breath for the second short climb of the day.

A few meters uphill and we will find ourselves in the Natural Reserve of Lake Villa, a unique scenery!

Once again downhill that will take us to the historical centre of Saint Vincent, right at the start of the biggest bumps of the day: Col de Joux, 15 Km at 7% average. A long climb but with a wonderful view of the entire valley.

The short descent will take us back to Brusson, where the last climb of the day will be waiting for us: the return to Champoluc.

The second day initially follows, in the opposite direction, the end of the previous day. We’ll start immediately with the ascent of Col de Joux, and a succession of hairpin bends will take us quickly to the summit.

A long descent will then take us directly to the second pass, at the foot of the hill: Col Tzecore, where the most severe slopes will be amply rewarded by the panorama we will admire.

A steep descent will take us at the beginning of the longest climb: Estoul. This ascent will give us a breathtaking landscape, directly from the ski resort and slopes of Brusson.

Three sisters
The last day begins with a very long descent -30km- to arrive directly to the village of Verres. From here the long ascent to the top of Ayas Valley will begin. The almost 25km of climb, alternating with short downhill sections, will take us back to the top of Col de Joux, touching Col d'Arlaz, Col Tzecore and some stretches of dirt road.
