This ride, which takes you from the resort to the surrounding pastures, is a last test before you tackle the more difficult routes.
It is a mix of all kinds of terrains: tarmac, dirt roads and paths. You leave Crans-Montana and cross the lower part of the ski area before you arrive at the Courtavey mountain pasture.
From Arnouvaz it is possible to detour to the Corbyre alpine pasture where you can taste different local cheeses.

The itinerary is a loop. It starts at Lake Moubra and takes you up to the resort of Crans-Montana. After passing by Lake Grenon, you attack the uphill to the pastures, towards Signal via Arnouvaz, where you can ski in winter. After pedalling t Courtavey and crossing the mayen area, you go back down via Plumachit and Barzettes back to the departure point, and why not refresh yourself and relax at the Lake Moubra beach which lends itself to swimming. Here you’ll find two restaurants with very welcoming terraces. A large part of the route is on surfaced roads and dirt tracks. They cross the resort, forest areas and pastures.
