Description

This fall we have a unique trip that features Chamonix, the Alps hotspot for trail running and proclaimed “Vallée du Trail,” then a visit to a quaint village high in the Swiss Alps and a special opportunity to take part in the Alps’ oldest trail race, DDM Trail, with its beautiful course around the wild Dents-du-Midi range.

Our trip starts in Chamonix, France, the world’s epicenter of trail running. We’ll run the high-elevation Balcon Sud, in full view of the impressive Mont Blanc massif and the towering Aiguilles, or needles, that dot the range. After, we’ll wander through town, taking in the sights in this village where modern-day alpinism began. Climbers still fill the streets, testing themselves against demanding rock and ice climbs. Our second day will feature a ridge run to the Aiguilles des Houches, and we’ll descend through pastures and forests back to Chamonix ....
