A hidden gem of a ride and right on our doorstep. Great descents, a stunning balcony road, and a rewarding climb leading to the 'Chamonix of the Savoie'.
From the chalet, the route embarks on a meandering tour of the local area, skirting the edge of the Vanoise National Park. We enjoy fantastic, quiet roads and impressive views looking back over to Courchevel as we make our way along to Champagny-en-Vanoise via the balcony road through Montagny.
From here it is up to the charming village ski station of Pralognan-La-Vanoise. This road has actually been used in the Criterium du Dauphine twice now and many pros use it for training. There will be plenty of time to take in the views and enjoy lunch and a coffee in one of many mountain restaurants before returning to La Tania via Courchevel Le Praz.
