22 (black) – Roche de Mio Champagny (alternative route)
Departure point: Top of Champagny gondola
Arrival point: Champagny en Vanoise

A cross-country route through the beautiful and little-visited valley of Vélière, more often used for large mountain biking trips.

From the top of the Champagny gondola, follow the alpine trail up to le Chalet des Verdons Sud and then continue in the direction of col de la Grande Forcle.
Before arriving at the col, fork right and continue on the trail below le Roc du Diable. After passing the Quillis et de Carella chairlift departure station (closed in summer), branch off to the right into a hairpin to join a trail that climbs up between le Roc du Serac and le Roc de la Tome, a short portage may be necessary. The trail leads to col de la Bauche de Mio, from where you descend to les chalets de la Vélière to rejoin route 22 back to Champagny.

Lifts used:
Champagny gondola.

Like all physical sporting activities, mountain biking can be dangerous, so take care!
