alpine route for athletic hikers
The hike, for those who are in good condition, begins at Col du Pillon near the Glacier 3000 valley station and takes over 4 hours. A windy mountain path takes you to the SAC hut Cabane des Diablerets at 2’500 metres. Afterwards the path continues to climb steeply. After a passage over the eternal snow of the glacier, you arrive at the goal: the mountain station Scex Rouge. Enjoy the spectacular panorama and let yourself be spoiled by culinary delights on the Restaurant Botta terrace. The cable car to the valley station departs every 20 minutes. Whoever has enough energy left, can hike back down to valley in about two and a half hours.
Call Glacier 3000 to know more about the conditions at the glacier, whether there is still snow on the path and if it is icy, and
