The start of this itinerary is at the edge of the car park under the Novelli chairlift departure station.
Follow the road towards the Cleuson dam for about 1,5 km. On this wide and well packed part, the slope is gradual and allows the novice ski tourer the time to adapt.
Then you leave this road and follow the marked track across the pasture which leads off to the right. Take the opportunity to lift your eyes to the left where you can see the dam wall. A pleasant ascent through the forest takes you on to a road leading to Tortin. Continue to the left of the chairlift along the plaine de Tortin until you reach a restaurant with the same name where your tour ends.
This blue itinerary is especially adapted to beginners. Ideal for an initiation, it allows you to discover the valley of the Printse, its wild pastures and its intact scenery.
You can come back down via the Tortin ski run.
