In addition to the two via ferrata routes already installed in Champagny en Vanoise, a new intermediate course opened in July 2015 in the sector of Les Bourtes in Belle-Plagne.
The new route takes climbers across a rocky itinerary equipped with cables, ladders, ramps, a monkey bridge and two giant zip wires, and is accessible for families and groups of friends.
The 600 m course, set between 2350 m and 2560 m altitude, is equipped with a continuous Aeroligne lifeline so climbers can keep moving without having to undo or change their connection from one section to the next.
