As I kid I cross-country skied a lot. But today was only the second time in the last two decades. I should do it more often.
La Vattay is in the Jura mountains near the Col de la Faucille above Geneva.
The photo of the Alps in the distance gives a pretty good idea of what I mean when I say getting “above the clouds.” Again, it was a dreary gray day down low, but perfectly sunny up high.
Three hours at a measured pace using muscles I forgot I had – tired.
When the snow is gone, there is a great cycling route up to La Vattay that starts on a tiny road by the church in Vesancy – steep and carless – but bring a mountain bike for the top parts – you can see the little road on the map below.
