This loop trail leads to the picturesque Refuge du Corbeau hut.
Starting near the church in Morgins’ village centre, pass behind the Chez Jan hotel. Take the road to the right of the bakery to Sépaz (about 20 minutes). The snowshoe trail begins just below the antenna tower.
Follow the dark blue snowshoe signs on your left marked ‘Karmazin-Parc’ des Têtes. At the Parc des Têtes, take the upper road towards the Restaurant du Corbeau. This trail follows the blue snowshoe signs marked ‘Parc des Têtes-Portes de Culet’, climbing gently to the restaurant Le Corbeau where you’ll find spectacular views of the Dents du Midi.
From here, continue towards the Portes de Culet pass until you come to the Ecottis ski lift. Beware of skiers, you will cross the ski slopes several times! At this point, return to Morgins following the yellow snowshoe signs marked ‘Portes de Culet-Morgins’.
The loop can be done in either direction.
Parking 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.
This is not the Grand Tour du Corbeau which circles the Bec du Corbeau mountain, passing through Super Châtel via the Portes de Culet pass. That tour takes 6 hours!
