Its 3,330 metres make the Mont-Fort the highest point in the vast "4 Vallées" winter sports region. The summit panorama stretches from Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn and includes more than 50 four-thousand-metre peaks. Here, this magnificent scenery forms the backdrop to one of the steepest slopes in the Alps. It is marked in black, but that's almost an understatement. The descent to the Col des Gentianes is only suitable for extremely good skiers. The route is secured but not rolled and its many bumps call for a high degree of physical fitness.
