Mont-Lachat descent n°9

Walk down to get to Cernix or Crest-Voland from the top of Mont Lachat.

From the TS de la Logère, turn right before the ESF chalet and continue for a few meters. Cross the ski slope to reach a passage in the forest. Cross a ski slope again. The route descends slightly and arrives at a new track crossing. Watch out for skiers! The route descends into the forest. At "Entre deux bois", turn left. The route continues in part more and more clear. The route then follows a track on the right without crossing it. Continue towards a wooden chalet and descend towards a place called "le Moulin". Remove the snowshoes and take the road to the left towards the car park, to find the path at the foot of the ski lifts. The route ends at Place du Cernix. Possibility to reach the village of Crest-Voland by taking route
n ° 7.

The Crest-Voland Cohennoz ski resort was born in 1951 with the construction by pioneers of the village and the surroundings of the 1st ski lift: the Lachat (replaced in 1999 by a chairlift). Setting up a station in this isolated corner was a bit of a gamble because road access was difficult, and there was then only one hotel and a ski shop. But at that time mountain agriculture was in crisis and the villages were depopulated. Thanks to the relentlessness of the mountaineers, the abundant snow and the development of skiing, the resort developed and tourism became the main activity.
