Difference in level:1372 m
How to get there
Aosta Est highway exit. Follow the directions for the Gran San Bernardo tunnel. In Saint-Oyen, turn left for Cerisey.
An easy and popular tour, great as the first run of the season. The constant slope makes for an easy climb and the northern exposure guarantees good snow.
Description of the route
From the large parking lot where the Foyer di fond is located, climb South along the slopes, cross the steam and continue to the woods. Enter the woods following the farm road to the Upper Flassin mountain pastures. Climb to the left along the steeper slopes heading for the gap between Testa Cordella and Mont Flassin. Follow the wide ridge and then the steeper segment to the summit.
Descent down the upward itinerary.
