How to use the ski touring guides

Description:

From the parking at Le Laus follow the road south (towards the Col d’Izoard) until it is blocked off.  On the left, there should be a ski de fond track which you follow into the valley on the left (south-east). From the hut after a long straight section it bears left and climbs steadily.  At around 2052m you should find a small bridge on the right of the track.  Take it and then work your way south- west through the trees.  As the trees thin out you will see L’Arpelin east face on your right.  Continue going south into a small bowl.  As the ground starts to rise towards the Cote Belle turn right (west) and make your way to the Col Perdu.

Descent:

Head back the way you came, it is possible to stay on the left-hand bank of the river you crossed for longer and then cross back over to the ski du fond track further down.
