From the village of Le Tour and Vallocirne, the Charamillon and Balme gondolas, and the Autannes chairlift, 2185 m, transport you over rich alpine pastures into a fabulous nature and leisure area.

This very sunny Franco-Swiss ski area reaches a height of 2,186m at Col de Balme pass.

It is reached via Le Tour village or by gondola lift from Vallorcine.

The Balme ski area has hill-walking paths of all levels of difficulty, such as the path up to the Albert I mountain hut, a very pleasant walk in a giant-scale glacier setting, but also routes in the wild through pastures and forests.

From Charmillon to Col des Posettes pass, numerous mountain-biking trails for all levels take you down to the villages of Le Tour and Vallorcine.

Where to eat: The Chalet de Charamillon and the mountain chalet at the Col de Balme pass welcome you in summer and a delicieus blueberry tart awaits the more courageous at the Albert I mountain hut.
