OverviewMont Collon is an impressive mountain, best seen from the Arolla valley. From there you can admire the realy pretty north face, wich has some interesting routes. People refer to the Mont Collon as the Matterhorn of Arolla. It forms a perfect end to the nice valley.
The mountain is close to the Cabane de Vignettes and many skiers pass the mountain every year, when they are doing the Haute Route.
Getting ThereGo past Arolla to a small parking space a little further, at the end of the ski piste. From here follow a trail on the right side of the road, a little left of the piste. The trail goes up for a couple of hundred meters, follow a ridge and at the top of this ridge go left. You are now entering a large slope, where at the end you can find the Cabana de Vignettes.
