The Via Ferrata in Morez, Jura, France

It hapens in the French part of the Jura and to be more precise in Morez. Guess what, this via is now open!  As it is the start of the season, this is a good sport to warm up your muscles. The first part is peace of cake and the third version is for the best with a zipline.

Like a drone, you have a beautiful view and at the top you can see the Bassin Morezien. As it is on the way to be translated, here is the french version. Découvre-là

Via Ferrata Avoriaz Closed in 2016

The French via ferrata in Avoriaz is closed for this year and may be in 2017.

If you are in the region, you may enjoy the via ferrata in Chapelle d'Abondance. It may be a little bit harder but a very nice one!

2016: On the Road Again!

Here we are!  The new via ferrata season is back in Europe. Spring is shining and warm temperatures are melting the snow. It is time to clean up your shoes, warm up your sling lines, find your gloves and get ready for fun.

At the moment, most of the via in the Plaine are out of snow. Above 1'200m this is still covered by snow (on the north side). Better to wait as the Tourism Office have to clean up the via.

Two suggestions for this season:

A) don't forget to change your sling lines if they are recalled
B) Make an easy start. Don't hurt yourself, choose an easy one!

On our side, we are translating via into English and we will open new countries. Tough work man!
Have fun
