18. Morgins – Télésiège de la Foilleuse

Morgins

Close

Uphill or downhill hike between Morgins and the summit of the La Foilleuse chairlift.

Starting at the bottom station of the Foilleuse chairlift, the trail passes next to the chalet called Kuhstall/Bois-Gentil. Just past the chalet, take the large path on your left. Just after passing under the chairlift, you will find the first round snowshoe red sign direction Savolaire.

At the crossroads, turn right into the forest following the Morgins-Madzé snowshoe signs.

At Madzé, take the wide path on your right, signposted Madzé-Télésiège Foilleuse. At number 14, take the left-hand path to the ridge and follow it to the top of the Foilleuse chairlift. From here, you will enjoy one of the region’s most spectacular views of the Dents du Midi and surrounding alps.

Descent by chairlift.

Variation:
Take the chairlift up and hike down on snowshoes:
Time 1h30.
When you leave the chairlift, turn left, the first beige snowshoe sign is at the arrival of the small ski lift (the one with the gentle slope) and you follow the ridge with the view on the mountains.

Parking available in Morgins village centre.

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.
