Torgnon Pure Emotion

Sport e Outdoor

For those looking for the thrill of the challenge and the pleasure of fatigue during their holidays, for those who love to challenge themselves and overcome unexpected difficulties, for those who love outdoor sports and suggestive spaces. To all of these Torgnon has something special to offer.

During the summer months, but also in spring and autumn, a dense network of paths accompany the pass up to the high peaks of Cima Bianca, Becca d'Aver, Méabé and Punta Tsan, the Col des Bornes or the Lo Ditor pond. Many of these tracks and the countless country roads are also ideal for mountain biking and horseback riding. While the more daring can try their hand at rock walls and paragliding flights.

In winter, of course, snow is the real star of our mountains.

The choice is yours to live it as you wish.

Torgnon offers downhill skiing lovers slopes that wind for 25 kilometers, all with artificial snow. These are wide and safe tracks capable of welcoming even less experienced skiers and children. But fun is also guaranteed to those who practice competition or love to perform on the snowboard.

The cross-country trails, with panoramic loops of 3 - 5 - 7.5 - 10 and 20 kilometers of varying difficulty, are among the largest in the Aosta Valley. The Grandes Montagnes slope, which can also be reached by cable car, offers an incomparable view of the Matterhorn. The connection of the La Maisonnette track with the Verrayes track guarantees a 40 km circuit that can be used with a single ticket. For beginners, the starting point is the Plan Prorion pitch.

THE LITTLE HOUSE
(3 -7,5 – 10 km.)

The Maisonnette slope offers a very beautiful, fun and technical itinerary, enough to satisfy the different skiers. The route goes into the woods on a path that cuts through the side of the mountain, gradually reaching the 1774 meters of the Col des Bornes (turning point of the ring). Here the gaze opens onto the central valley. For the 10 kilometer ring, continue towards a clearing in the woods which then returns to the hill and from here to the starting point.

GRANDES MONTAGNES (20 km.)

From Plan Priorion, heading north, you reach the spectacular Grandes Montagnes slope (also accessible by cable car). It is a very long, fully beaten path that leads to the Loditor pond and from here to Gilliarey.

The route runs along the country road which in summer leads to the mountain pastures and offers a suggestive landscape to the eye: on the right, the town of Torgnon and opposite the Matterhorn. Once you reach the lake, you can continue with a stretch of good ascent and reach the 2169 meters of Gilliarey, one of the most panoramic points in the whole area. To the south you can admire the valley floor, to the north the imposing silhouette of the Matterhorn, below the Valtournenche basin. From here the Plateau Rosa with its eternal snows will seem close at hand.
