    Haute Route Day 2: Trient - Montfort

    A shallow ski down the Trient glacier and very short ski-less scramble up to the Col des Ecandies (2793m) to enter the top of the Val d'Arpette. A fun, scenic and long descent through Val d'Arpette. Walk from Arpette down to Champex for lunch by the lake. Minibus from Champex to Verbier. Cable car from Verbier to Ruinettes followed by long boring ascent to Montfort refuge (2457m). Would have been good to arrive a little earlier to enjoy the sun.

    Ash at Col des Ecandies

    Lunch in Champex
