Many itineraries can be done in half a day (about 3 hours). At the Aravis pass, a loop is possible via the plachaux and the Cornet ridge. We are then at the border between Savoie and Haute-Savoie. The atmosphere here is more vertical, more alpine and the view on the Mont-Blanc is sublime. It is not uncommon to observe chamois here as well. The head of the Danay, this modest summit above La Clusaz, is a beautiful goal in itself because it is a magnificent viewpoint on the Aravis. The plateau of Follières, which is located above the Maison des bois where the famous restaurateur Marc Veyrat works, is also a "snowshoeing" destination that is not to be missed in the area.
For day trips, we will go further west in the direction of Mount Charvin. We will have the choice between the classic Sulens mountain, or less frequented routes such as the Pointe d'Orsière or the Tour map.
