Description

The Verbier, Entremont region offers numerous snowshoeing outings and the choices are endless.

I propose here a 2-day hike with an overnight stay in one of the famous local mountain huts, the Cabane Brunet.

The Cabane Brunet is set in the heart of the Val de Bagnes and comes highly recommended because of its incredible location. This area provides delightful walks through the forest with breathtaking views of the mountain ranges. The main theme of this outing is based on the wildlife and their winter habitat and the rapid melting of the glaciers and the repercussions this has on the environment and local economy.

DAY 1 : WALKING UP TO THE CABANE MARCEL BRUNET ALT 2103m

800m+ 3 h

The first day we can either drive or take the local bus up to the starting point which is located above the village of Lourtier. From here the path follows an easy trail which connects to a beautiful path in the forest and quickly becomes more vertical. This lovely trail winds up through the forest and eventually meets an opening where the views become more evident. As the trees become more spaced out the surrounding peaks begin to appear. Finally when we leave the forest the swiss flag is visible and our destination is approaching, the Cabane Brunet can be seen perched up on the ridge. On arriving at the cabane you will be warmly welcomed and rewarded with the delicious local specialities.

DAY 2 : LE GOLI DES OTANES ALT. 2552M AND RETURNING TO THE VALLEY FLOOR

The second day consists of crossing up and down a succession of small valleys in the beautiful setting of the massif de Combins (and in particular the Petit Combin). This trail leads us under the foothills of the Mont Rogneux where the views of the surrounding area are sensational. The descent is via the same itinerary and allows us to enjoy the view of the bottom half of the Val de Bagnes, and finally the last stop at the Cabane Brunet before heading down.

About the guide: -Sarah

Mountain Leader

Setting off on an adventure on a whim, without a precise plan, walking according to desires and emotions, pushing further to discover what a summit or a ridge reveals. Trained as a business lawyer, then manager of a large sports store, biathlete and trail runner, it was my job as a guide that ultimately allowed me to establish a more structured and secure framework for my wanderings, but without ever losing my wonder and my curiosity. It is with this state of mind that today I like to travel and share the mountains here and elsewhere, preferably roaming, in order to give us time to soak up the landscapes which evolve over time, days and seasons.

I will always be happy to set off on the classic tours, but above all I strive to guide you off the beaten paths.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
