Signposted trails in the Portes du Soleil mountains
The Portes du Soleil is 12 French-Swiss village resorts nestling in the northern Alps between Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc. This summer, come and explore no less than 46 signposted trails in the Portes du Soleil mountains - that's the equivalent of a 400km playground!
There are introductory trail running routes of four different levels (from green - less than 8km - to black, which involves sky-running along ridges).
And don't be put off by the altitude change because the routes start at the top of the chairlifts (altitude 1500 metres), guaranteeing you an amazing panorama on your run!
