From Vars les Claux ski resort, ride down the main road, then turn right on a large pathway that continues for about 800 meters before crossing the road again and heading to Sainte-Marie village. Pass the Sainte-Marie chair-lift start and continue on a small road which follows the mountain stream in the direction of Saint-Marcellin village. About 700 meters after the chair-lift, before Saint-Marcellin, turn left and cross the bridge over the stream. Here begins the climbing. Follow the small tarmac road for 360 meters difference of height and a succession of hairpin bends. Turn left of the dirt-road leading to Peyrol and to the top of the 1st section of the chair-lift. Once at the top, you'll follow the slope of the mountain, weaving in and out of herds of cows on a small path turning to the left. It then goes under the Lièvre button-lift and to the left towards the Chalet des Cassettes. Continue under the footbridge and ride down to the ski resort.
Option: in Sainte-Marie, save your energie by climbing up the mountain with the 1st section of the chair-lift (check the opening days and hours!)
