‘Yannick Ecoeur’ Black Trail / Rando Parc Morgins

Morgins

Designed by and named for our local skimo champion Yannick Ecoeur, this is technically and physically the most demanding itinerary of the Rando Parc. Experienced skiers love the challenge it represents and the feeling of satisfaction at the summit with its stunning views.

This formidable itinerary requires experience in ski touring and an excellent physical condition, as it winds its way through some steep, technical sections. If you’re up to the challenge, you will be rewarded by the beauty of the Grande Jeur forest and unforgettable, panoramic views from the top of the Aiguille des Champeys.

Descent:
From the top of the Crêtes de la Foilleuse: ski down via the La Foilleuse ski run.
From the Aiguille des Champeys: ski down via the Didier Défago ski run.

SIGNS
The trail is marked with yellow diamond-shaped signs (with a black dot) up to the top of the Aiguille des Champeys.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS:
Please take note and follow these important safety instructions. At the start of each trail, a sign indicates whether it is open or not. If the trail is closed, this can indicate lack of snow or dangerous conditions. Taking a closed trail is at your own risk. Open or closed, the trails are marked but not patrolled. We strongly advise that you carry, and know how to use, avalanche safety equipment (avalanche transceiver, probe, shovel, and emergency blanket). Région Dents du Midi and Movement Skis decline all responsibility in case of an accident.
