Mainly downhill, alternating between paths and trails, fun for everyone.

Start using the ski lifts, be sure to check the opening periods. Starting from Vars Les Claux, follow the main road down until you come to a wide path to the right. It then crosses the road again a little further on and links up to the village of Sainte-Marie. Save your energy by making it to the top using the 1st section of the chair lift (be sure to check opening days and times). Once you reach the top, while avoiding the cows, continue along the mountainside on a small path that heads off to the left, crosses under the Lièvre ski lift and forks to the left towards the Chalet des Cassettes. Then go under the footbridge before heading to the resort.
