In winter, several factors can influence your progression. Sometimes it can be difficult to accurately predict the rate of progression. On average, the increase will be about 2 or 3 km/h. However, after a heavy snowfall, your progress could be as low as 0.5 km/h!.

To cross this trail in the winter, we suggest our "Crossing the Philosore" package, that includes access rights, two nights in a shelter (Philosore and L’Orignal) and shuttle service as well. (Access to Accueil Mauvaise requires a 4X4 vehicle in winter time)
