Route

At Lac Vert: a magnificent view of Mt Blanc. Plus, orientation table, picnic tables and barbecues at your disposal. No bathing possible.

After a break at Lac Vert, continue on the path up towards Plagne Aime 2000 (arrival under Club Med 3 tridents). Follow the road to the tracked vehicle garage and join the roadway that passes under Club Med 4 tridents. Go back down towards the Jean Luc Crétier Slalom Stadium (famous for hosting international winter competitions). Return to Plagne Centre main square.

Possible alternative
To avoid the steep path at the start of the walk, you can go along the road down to the bottom of Plagne Centre. The path starts a hundred metres after the biomass boiler (last building in Plagne Centre).

Curiosity
The biomass (wood) boiler room, inaugurated in 2009, supplies heating to around fifty buildings and shops in Plagne Centre.
In Plagne Aime 2000, the main building is listed as a 20th century architectural heritage building. Possible descent by cable car from Plagne Aime 2000 to Plagne Centre.
