Description

A spectacular hike with breathtaking views of the Vanoise Glaciers and Grande Casse Peak.
Flirt with the high mountains... which are only a stone's throw away! Enjoy prestigious views of the surrounding peaks on this hike. During your aerial traverse from the Col Noir to the Col Rosset, you may even have the chance to meet the ibex that inhabit this little corner of paradise. Take advantage of your hike to stop off at the Lac de la Patinoire, often covered in ice or small "icebergs". An unforgettable walk!

Guidebook with maps/step-by-step

1. From the Fontanettes parking lot, take the path that winds under the Gentiane chairlift up towards Mont Bochor (path no. 7).
2. At Mont Bochor, at the intersection, follow the path that leads to the top of the Ancolie chairlift across the Bochor plateau (path no. 8).
3. Continue towards Col Rosset (path no. 10), crossing the Creux Noir cirque. Stay on this path until you reach the chalet des gardes. The descent to the Cabane des Gardes often involves a névé, which you'll need to tackle with great care, depending on the state of the snow. Don't hesitate to give up and turn back rather than risk an uncontrolled slide.
4. Join the itinerary below which leads to the Barmettes refuge (trail no. 14) and then to the Fontanettes hamlet (trail no. 13).
You can shorten the ascent by taking the Mont Bochor cable car, then the descent by using the Genépi chairlift (subject to opening conditions).

VARIANTE: LAC DE LA PATINOIRE (2,512 m) (difficult) +1h round trip, + 120m ascent, + 1km

2. On the way down, join the Chalet des Gardes and then the refuge des Barmettes (trails no. 10 and 14).
3. Go down this path (trail no. 14), then, at Les Barmettes, follow the path to Les Fontanettes (trail no. 13).
