Itinerary For Snowshoeing: The Drains

Description

Take the tarmac road for about 150m. After the flat area in front of the chalets, put on your snowshoes. Cross the ski slope, paying attention to the skiers. Continue up a gentle slope towards the hamlet of Planay above. At the end of the forest, admire the panorama of the Tarentaise valley. Enter the village and after a few houses, take the wide and steep RIGHT path away from the village. When you reach a few chalets, turn RIGHT at the junction. Admire the DRAINS of Sainte Foy. Man-made construction to limit the infiltration of water into the soil and to protect against landslides, which used to be regular. After the flat path, cross the small bridge. The slight climb takes you back to the E route, which takes you back to the path you took on the way out. Return on the same tracks to the chapel.
