At the slopes of Mt. Thyon, above Veysonna, passionate competitions for World Cup positions take place. In the summer months these slopes are wonderful for extensive hiking and biking tours. Deep down below extends the vast Rhône Valley. And on the opposite side is the northern chain of the Valaisian Alps with the eye-catching glacial Pleine Morte. Turn your glance westward and you will be able to see as far as the bend in the valley of Martigny.
Seasoned skiers can really play their talent with flying colours here. The Piste de l'Ours (bear’s track) in Veysonnaz is regarded by experts as being one of the finest ski slopes in the world. Numerous World Cup races have been held there.
The idyllic little village of Euseigne lies at the junction between Val d'Hérens and Val d'Hérémence. Perhaps nobody would have taken particular notice, if it hadn't been for the odd rock formations that have arisen at the edge of the village. They are proudly called the Pyramids of Euseigne. The rocks are natural geological degradations formed by normal rainfall.
