Four valleys, one winter sports arena: The "4 Vallées" comprise Switzerland’s largest ski area. In the easternmost valley, the Val d'Hérémence, there are the broad, sweeping slopes of Thyon. The highest starting point for the descent is at the top station for the Ethérolla chairlift. Looking out from the ridge you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Valais four-thousand-metre peaks. In the upper section, this challenging piste has a considerable gradient, while further down it runs more gently to the chairlift valley station.
