La Villars60

60km and 3'908 m D+

Starting from Villars-sur-Ollon, you will be joining Montreux by the peaks. This trail will allow you to benefit not only of an exceptional panorama with 360 degree views over the Mont Blanc, the Dents du Midi and many other peaks of the Alps but also the impressive “Tours d’Aï” of Leysin leading up to the plunging views over Lake Geneva from Malatraix and the Pointe d'Aveneyre to the Rochers de Naye and of course the impressive Dent de Jaman. A true alpine trail for experienced runners or for those wanting to participate for the first time in a long distance race. A "to do" race before attempting the adventure of the MXtrem160!
