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?

Winter trail of the patrollers
This white trail from Crans-Montana, called Winter Trail des Patrouilleurs, offers two routes, one 10 km long and the other 20 km long. For the 10 km course, the start will be from Les Barzettes to Les Marolires, Arnouva and then to the golf course of Crans-Montana. You will pass along the whole bottom of the ski area, however, you will always overlook the resort of Crans-Montana and you will not exceed 1770 m altitude.
For the 20 km course, the starting point is not the same as the 10 km course. Indeed, you will leave from the neighbouring village of Aminona. You immediately get to the heart of the matter by the big ascent leading to the Cave du Scex. Shortly afterwards, you will reach the highest point of this route at 1915 m. You will reach the small course at the 11th km and will not leave it until you reach the Golf de Crans-Montana.
