Easy-to-access trail running in Europe’s biggest resort network.
This summer, how does a little trail running in the mountains sound?
Then come and have a go in the Portes du Soleil! There’s a massive choice for trail fans here, with 48 signposted routes in all.
There are introductory trail running routes of four different levels (from green - less than 8km - to black, which involves sky-running along ridges). And don’t be put off by the altitude change because the routes start at the top of the chairlifts (altitude 1500 metres), guaranteeing you an amazing panorama on your run!
Start out from les Gets or one of 11 others Portes du Soleil resorts and run across the French-Swiss border in complete safety with a map to guide you, our free mobile app and signposted tracks to follow.
You can track your progress in real time with GPS en route, check the weather on our live webcams, and even call for help with the rescue function.
Check the route on the app, select the village-resort where you’re starting out, as well as the distance and difficulty level. You can track your progress in real time with GPS en route, check the weather on our live webcams, and even call for help with the rescue function.
