Route

Located at altitude 4.5 km from Lans en Vercors itself on the Allières in a "hidden valley" there are three circuits, a red, a blue and a green. They all start and end at the Col du Furon and are well signposted so no chance of getting lost. The difference between the blue and red is marginal apart from a slightly steeper but short descent. The red offers better views on the lower part of the circuit as it stays on the back of the hill. The blue is well thought out as the climbs tend to be in the shade and descents in the sun, so faster snow for climbing and softer snow for the descent.

There are shuttle buses from the village and when the snow is good a red piste can be used to return. The Auberge des Allières near the col du Furon offers traditional food and accomodation.
