Departure from Champex. Take a transfer from Champex to Le Châble which is the base of Verbier Ski Resort. Buy the tickets and take the lifts up to Col des Gentianes.
From there, choose the best way to reach the Col de la Chaux (2940m). Contemplate the stunning north face of Bec de Rosses, where The Verbier Extrem, one of the most prestigious Freeride Contest in the world, takes place. After a short descent, you’ll arrive near the Lac du Petit Monfort.
Now skin up to Col de Momin(3003m) and then through the Glacier of Prafleuri. Admire the breathtaking views over the Mont Blanc Massif. If you want and you have enough time, you can go to the top of Rosablanche(3336m) from where you’ll have a nice descent to the Cabane de Prafleuri.
Notice that if you are late, the snow of the last slopes (south face oriented) will melt and you won’t take advantage of the magnificent descent that takes you to the Cabane de Prafleuri.
This Cabane is probably the most comfortable hut in the whole Haute Route. They have built a new shelter next to he old one with all the amenities:
- Small rooms up to 6 people max spread for instance in litters of 2
- Running water
- Showers (may not work in winter)
Downside? There’s practically no place to dry your skins and boots.
(Keep in mind that the path marked by the GPS is now an indication. You must adapt your own path to the snow, glacier and weather conditions, or any other factors which may affect the safety of the route.)
