Duration: 2 hours

Length: 4000 m

Itinerario n.7

*Access*

From the Verrès motorway exit, go up the Val d'Ayas (SR45) for about 17 km to Brusson.

*Description of the route*

Route no. 7 starts downstream of the village of Brusson: cross wide snowy meadows to the bridge over the Evançon. From here go along the cross-country trail until you reach the historic Ru d'Arlaz that accompanies the route to the hamlet of Arcesaz. If you want you can continue to Challand Saint Anselme. It is recommended to pay particular attention to the stretches along the cross-country ski trail, staying on the side and, in case of crossing, to give priority to skiers.
