A less well known tour, with a possibility of a loop, offers interesting views of the nearby peaks.

We start near Petit-Bornand-les-Glières.
On the way up the trail passes through woods and open alpine meadows by various chalets (de La Combe, des Mouilles).
We aim for the Roche Parnal but do not climb to the summit, and start the descent from Col du Freu.
If anyone knows how to make a snow-man, please say in advance.
I have 1 spare pair of raquettes if anyone needs one.

Alt diff: 600m
Duration: 3h up / 3h down
Difficulty: 2/5
