The ideal vertical kilometre. Crude, heavy, short but very intense effort.


The shortest way to get from one point to another. You can do this route in competition during the Mad'Trail, a sporting event held in mid-July in the resort of Valmorel (Altitude 1340).
2.8 kms of pure alpine style ascent and almost 1000 elevation gain to be swallowed from the beach volleyball ground of the resort of Valmorel.

Symbolically, you will have to touch the cross on the summit of Crève-Tête (altitude 2342). This is when you will understand why you made such an effort.

The view is spectacular! A 360° which makes you appreciate the Massif of La Lauzière, the valley of Nâves, the valley of Belleville, the glaciers of the Vanoise and, weather permitting, the Mont Blanc.

Enjoy these magical moments!

Departure : Beach volleyball court, Valmorel resort
