Ski Tracks at Dorénaz
This is the most famous skiing tracks in Valais both pre and post season, since the Ski stations open their tracks between June and the end of September. In the meantime, Dorenaz sees the amount of mad sprockets increase significantly when there is no longer enough snow and the weather begins to lighten up. Therefore, it is not rare to meet Swiss champions, as they might even be testing new materials for the World Cup. The cable car will lead you to the top of the tracks and is open all year except for the first thursday of each month, due to a general checkup in case of strong winds.
House of tales and legends
You enter through a mysterious cave, then climb, eyes well opened, seeing all corners, witnessing past lives, silhouettes can already be seen and we shiver!
All it takes is to take off your shoes, and to put on the boots of seven leagues, and up there, in the attic, to let yourself go, to let yourself count, and to listen to your heartbeat.
Trophée du Scex-Carro
C'est en 1978, que Jean-Marcel Biollay, passionné de chronométrage, proposa à Marc Rouiller, alors président du ski-club La Flèche Bleue, d'organiser une course de montagne reliant Dorénaz à la Cabane du Scex-Carro.
Et c'est ainsi que le 30 juillet 1978, plus de 200 candidats s'élancèrent sur l'un des trois parcours proposés à l'époque. 35 ans après l'organisation de la première course, le ski-club La Flèche Bleue de Dorénaz a décidé de remettre sur pied le Trophée en conservant le tracé qui a fait sa renommée.
