Tramail des Ors is an extremely enchanting destination. The snow-covered slopes above the Les Ors pastures provide great contact with the wintry mountain.
Description of the route
From the last parking lot, carry your snow shoes for about 150 m until you find the farm road that starts on your right: you can put on snow shoes here.
The first part, slightly ascending, continues almost straight to the La Lié chalet. The path gains altitude from the chalet with a series of bends that cross the beautiful larch and red fir woods. You’ll find a few renovated chalets during the climb while the impressive pyramid shape of Aiguille de Chambave appears before your. Ignore the slopes you find on your right to quickly climb to altitude 2000 m near Plan Bellard. The woods become thinner as you reach the snow-covered fields under the mountain pastures: just a few more minutes and you’re in Les Ors desot.
Leaving the pastures, head to your right to the farm road slope: continue North-East heading towards Tête des Fra, crossing the slope until you reach the magnificent ring of snow under Col Fetita. Climb the snow-covered slope keeping to the right bank of the Pissorio stream. Along the route you can enjoy some breathtaking views of the rugged Grande Rochère and Aiguille de Bonalex peaks. Continue across the wide snow-covered slope to the foot of col Fetita (only cross this segment in excellent snow conditions). From here, turn left and cross the practically flat route to Tramail des Ors.
