La Première Montée

05 DECEMBER 2020

For the 2019 FIRST ASCENT OF Montée les Arcs, more than 250 snow-riding fans came together on the freshly snow-covered pistes.


No stop watches, no pressure, just the pleasure of meeting up with friends again to spend a convivial moment together on a ski touring outing.

In surroundings that are still completely quiet and without lifts, you can put on your seal skins and make your first tracks on the freshly-groomed pistes of the Arc 2000  Valley this year.


9.00 am: Meet for a free breakfast in the hamlet of « Pré Saint Esprit » in Arc 2000. Final entries on site.

10.00 am: Start of the ascent. Participants must check inat least 10 minutes before the start time to complete their entry.

Just before the start,  there will be a briefing to remind participants of the safety instructions, to present the courses and to pass on any other information that the organisers consider helpful.

From 11.30 am: After the effort it’s time to refortify yourself! Lunch will be provided free on your return.

In the event of bad weather, the event will be postponed to Sunday 6 December.


Start from le Pré Saint Esprit and climb to the Col de la Chal. About 4.5km and  a gross ascent of 645 metres of pure joy.  Take the same route back down.
