"La Montagne de Nifflon" Snowshoe Trek
Alpage de Nifflon, Nifflon d'en Haut, 74470, Bellevaux
Set off on an adventure to the 1821 Nifflon chapel, Notre Dame des Neiges. Along this picturesque walk you'll see typical alpine chalets and may be lucky enough to see some chamois.
Departure: Car park at the bottom of the hamlet of Ermont. Route details: You'll see a sign for Nifflon d'en Bas at the top of the car park. Follow the sign (north) for 200m or 300m then turn right following the yellow markings into the woodland. Follow this footpath until you reach the Nifflon d'en Bas mountain pasture. When you reach the crucifix, head towards Nifflon d'en Haut and you'll see Notre Dame des Neiges chapel. Then follow directions to Pointe d'Ireuse or north east for views of Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc. Go back to Ermont on the same route. NOTE: We strongly recommend you do NOT take this trip in foggy conditions or following snowfall.
