If you love this pre-Alp region of Canton Vaud in Summer,  you are going to love this snow race!  Les Diablerets is situated between Lac Léman and Gstaad, Canton Bern at 1200m.  The area is an adventure sporting heaven.  The organising teams of the ski mountaineering race  ‘La Diablerets 3D’ and that of the Humani’Trail teamed up to create this trail race in 2018.

“The Tréchadèze” is a historical battle site in the Ormonts Valley .  Your battle will be to complete this 20 km race  starting along the banks of the River Grande Eau at the bottom of the Cirque de Creux de Champs, you will go up the slopes of Meilleret to a height of  1774 m before descending towards Vers-l’Eglise, a typical hamlet of Ormonts, where “the horses can be unleashed” for the last kilometers towards Les Diablerets along the River Dar.

“L’Ormonanche”  itinerary is a 10km initiation to trail running on snow, you will traverse the banks of both rivers of the village to the Cirque de Creux de Cham and climb 450 m along the course of the race.

The races follow north facing slopes to guarentee good snow cover in March.
