This spectacular loop trail offers a superb view of the Dents du Midi and the Vaudoise Alps beyond.
Starting at the bottom station of the Foilleuse chairlift, the trail passes next to the chalet called Kuhstall. Just past the chalet, take the large path on your left. Once you have passed under the chairlift, you will see the first red snowshoe sign towards Savolaire.
Further up, you will come to a crossroads, at which point you can choose the direction of the loop you wish to take :
– If you prefer to hike the steepest part uphill (what we suggest you), turn right and head into the forest following the snowshoe signs for Morgins-Madzé. At the place called Madzé, turn left towards Madzé-Savolaire, which will take you to the Buvette de Savolaire (closed in winter). From here, head downhill following the signs for Savolaire-Morgins. From Champarin to Morgins, follow the large path to your starting point.
– If you prefer to hike the steepest part going downhill, follow the snowshoe signs marked Morgins-Savolaire along the large path to the area called Champarin. As you leave the forest, spectacular views of the surrounding mountains will unfold before you. Head towards the Buvette de Savolaire (closed in winter). From there, follow the purple snowshoe signs marked Savolaire-Madzé. When you arrive at Madzé, hike down the Madzé-Morgins trail to your starting point.
Morgins’ snowshoe trails are marked with round signs in different colours, named by section according to the start and end of the trail segment. The snowshoe trails do NOT show the same numbers used on the Winter Sports Map.
