Ski touring | Le Tarent

Head for the highest peak in the Pays-d'Enhaut ! Le Tarent, situated at 2540 m and accessible from the north side.

This summit, known to ski tourers, is located on the mountain range separating Ormont-Dessus to the south (Les Diablerets) and the Pays-d'Enhaut to the north (l'Etivaz). At an altitude of 2540 metres, it is also the highest of the Vaud Pre-Alps.

The hike begins in the village of l'Etivaz, capital of the L'Etivaz AOP alpine cheese.
Start the hike with a gentle warm-up in the Eau Froide valley to the place called "Les Maulatreys". With only 200 metres of difference in altitude, this is an opportunity to chat with your fellow hikers.

Then the slope rises in front of you, go up to the combe Nord du Tarent (500 metres difference in height). Regain your strength with a hot drink before starting the final ascent of the combe du Tarent, which has a difference in altitude of around 700 metres. Return to the route with a false flat. Finish the climb with a steep and technical section that is often done without skis.

At the top, you will be rewarded for your efforts by an incredible view of the Alps, the plateau and Mont Blanc. All that remains is to remove the skins and finish the route with a moment of pure pleasure: a long descent ! This is done by the same route as the ascent.
