Trail running at Portes du Soleil

The new standard in mountain running

With good connections, 23 ski lifts, no boundaries, 32 summits at heights of 2,000 m all accessible on foot and a lively feel in summer like no other, it seems obvious for Portes du Soleil to position itself as trail running territory.

No boundaries, trail running as never before and accessible to all.

Accessible trail running across the largest connected area in all of Europe. Les Portes du Soleil invites you to travel across borders, explore the alpine pastures and the Chablais ridges on any of the 48 permanent trails and 400 km of marked trails open since June 2017. With a multipass card, you can choose your valley, your village as a point of departure and the level of difficulty in terms of distance or steepness – the only thing left for you to do is put on your trainers.

Trail running for everyone

Whether you are a beginner or more experienced, the lifts allow you to get some fresh air without getting out of breath. The steepness is always manageable whether ascending or descending, making trail running enjoyable for all. The easier it is, the more fun it is: get yourself a multipass card, download the Trail Running Portes du Soleil app onto your mobile phone, set your starting point to in front of the tourist office in one of the Portes du Soleil villages, and off you go!
