A new route for the premier race, which offers a complete tour of the Wildstrubel massif and the Plaine Morte glacier, crossing two cantons, two language regions and five internationally renowned destinations.
Full loop around the Wilsdtrubel massif
A 113km course and 6600m D+ for a unique adventure around the Wildstrubel massif. Departure from Crans-Montana for a first part in the heart of the Swiss Valais, between perfectly maintained pastures and tender alpine meadows, where local products will be in the spotlight to refuel you! Then, you will cross into the canton of Berne via the mythical Gemmi pass (2,268m), which you will remember for a long time. The canton of Bern will surprise you between Adelboden, Kandersteg or the Lenk, and finally the famous Wildstrubel hut, the highest point of the race at 2,800m. The end of the route will bring you back to the Valais side, once you have crossed the Rawyl pass (2'427m), to enjoy the emerald colours of the Tseuzier lake and an exceptional last section along the Ro bisse. The variety of landscapes encountered is the strong point of the route. One thing is certain, this loop is worth the diversions!
