White trails

From green to white!

During the summer period, there is a plethora of trail races. Every weekend, we will find one or even several trails. These allow you to discover entire resorts and regions with breathtaking panoramas. Therefore, no wonder these races are a huge success. It is therefore not surprising that almost every resort has its own trail because it is a real tourist attraction that generates overnight stays and economic benefits.

However, white trails are much more confidential. But recently, some resorts are organizing these white trails and we list them below. So certainly, the distances are not the same because of the brightness on the one hand, because of running on (in) the snow also increases considerably the physical difficulty and let us not forget the cold. So you liked the trail in green, will you like it in white?
