    Route Description for Pierre Avoi

    The Pierre Avoi hike starts out on easy terrain, but ascends steeply to the summit of Pierre Avoi. Parts of the hike are on steep rocky trail, so sturdy shoes are best.

    Take the lift from either La Tzoumaz or Le Creux to the Savoleyres upper station (2,332 m). The cost of the lift pass varies depending on the season and type of pass so check with the website before heading up. Take note of the lift operating hours which may change- you’ll want to be down in plenty of time to catch the last lift down.

    Start the hike by following a trail from Savoleyres going west along the ridge. You will be passing under a power pylon if you’re headed in the right direction.

    The trail continues west on rolling terrain until it starts to climb near some anti-avalanche fencing. Past the avalanche fencing, the trail climbs a steep, rocky portion with some ladders installed to help you reach the summit. Take care here.

    The summit is a long, narrow area with a large cross, and the views are astounding.

    Return to the lift station the same way you came.
