After a long descent with some technical passages, you change continent and enter "in Canada". The lake of Flaine and its plain welcome you... You go along a trail in balcony (technical) until the neck. It follows the rise of the Gerrats, long and sustained. The tour of the Albaron is offered to you with its multiple points of view on the valley of the Arve. To reach the Vernant valley, you will visit the forest. A long ascent through Lake Vernant will take you to the Veret Pass and then to the Col des Grands Vans. The Mont Blanc massif and its king face you during the descent of the Lanches Fleuries. The effort follows the pleasure with the "vertical" which takes you to the Pelouse pass. It will be necessary to bypass Tête Pelouse to join the Great Places. You will then go back to Flaine forum with the DMC.

Downhill variant : the return to the station can be made from Col Pelouse by the trail that follows the Alpine meadows of Serpentine until Flaine forest, before joining the sports facilities then the Forum.
