Val d'Ayas

Snowshoe hike at Pian di Verra inferiore and Resy

A panoramic journey between the great giants of Monte Rosa

By: Comune di Ayas

Route category: Snowshoeing and ski touring

Duration: 3 hours

Length: 6000 m

Difficulty: Medium

The Pian di Verra Inferiore is a vast flat glacial clearing at about 2,000 meters above sea level. Up there, you will find yourself immersed in a silent and motionless nature, in the presence of the great giants of Monte Rosa.

From Saint-Jacques, follow trail No. 7 (Lago Blu and Mezzalama hut itinerary).

The climb begins steeply to soften as it goes. After a short while, you meet the village of Fiery and the clearing of Beau Bois where some old buildings stand. It is worth a stop to admire the beautiful view of the valley. One last stretch of ascent and almost suddenly you find yourself inside the plateau where Monte Rosa rises majestically in front of you. You continue by crossing a small bridge on the right and following the driveway in the direction of Saint Jacques to the junction for Resy. In about 20 minutes of easy ups and downs you arrive at the picturesque Walser village, where you can indulge in a delicious stop at the two on-site refuges.

The descent follows trail No. 9, which is a bit steep, but in just 50 minutes takes you back to Saint Jacques.
