Imagine a cycling enduro in the heart of the Swiss Valais, offering an exceptional sport challenge linking the region’s ski stations in a spectacular environment. The so-called Tour des Stations became a reality on 11 August 2018 consisting of three different courses following the concept of the Marmotte Granfondo Series. Choose between distances of 220km, 140km or 50km -and the corresponding altitude differences of 7,400m, 4,700m or 2,000m. The courses feature « class of its own » climbs like the mythical Croix-de-Cœur, topping out at 2,174 metres with its last six kilometers on gravel. Festivities take place from August 8 to 11!
Col de la Croix-de-Coeur
At the exit of the Tzoumaz station, the road winds through the mountain in a dozen laces that will take you to the top of the Col de la Croix-de-Coeur and its 2174m, which make it the roof of this Tour des stations. This exceptional climb will allow you to climb on the summit opening onto the exceptional landscape of the Val de Bagnes.
