Outdoor Activity
Mont Fort is a mountain of the Pennine Alps, located near Verbier in the Swiss canton of Valais. It lies on the range between the valleys of Bagnes and Nendaz, north of the Rosablanche. With a height of 3,328 metres above sea level, Mont Fort is the highest summit north of the Col de Louvie (2,921 m).Mont Fort is surrounded by several glaciers, the largest being the Glacier de Tortin, on its northwestern side. The second largest is the Glacier du Mont Fort, located on its northeastern side. On its eastern side lies the lower summit Petit Mont Fort (3,135 m). The Glacier du Petit Mont Fort lies between the two summits. There are no glaciers on the south side of the mountain. A small lake named Lac du Petit Mont Fort (2,764 m) lies on the south flank.The summit of Mont Fort is easily accessible by cable car from the heights of Verbier or Nendaz. The cable cars from the two valleys converge at the intermediate station (2,894 m) north of the Col des Gentianes, the upper section reaching a height of 3,308 metres. In the winter and early spring season, the mountain, including the Glacier de Tortin, is the culminating point of the 4 Vallées ski area, accessible by the "Mont-Fort" cable car. There is one ski slope leading down from the mountain's peak - which then leads down to the Col des Gentianes, where a restaurant and two cable cars leading down to Verbier and Siviez (Haute-Nendaz) are situated.AccessibilityAs above, the mountain is accessible from the '4 Vallées' ski area, made up of La Tzoumaz, Verbier, Haute-Nendaz, Veysonnaz and Thyon, each interconnected with ski lifts, managed by each ski resort's separate lift operators . Mont-Fort lies between the Verbier and Nendaz .

  • Ако сте смештени у Nendaz, треба вам око два сата да стигнете на овај врх. Вреди обићи овај врх само ако је време сунчано јер ако није, или х+гондола не ради или не можете уживати у прелепом погледу н...  more »
  • Recently, I was skiing in the 4 Vallées. Unfortunately, there was no new snow for nearly two months. The slopes were pretty iced, but covered with snow with snow cannons. I really enjoyed the quiet time around Christmas. Towards the end of the year, the slopes have filled up again. Adults facing around €300 for 5 days ski pass.

  • We took advantage of the first days of ski to spend a weekend in Nendaz and go to the Summit of Mont-Fort at 3300 m altitude. What extraordinary views from this unique spot that offers a magical glance at the Cervin/Matterhorn, Mont Blanc and the most spectacular peaks in the Alps! In addition, the route to ski from the Summit of Mont-Fort to Siviez/Nendaz worth: close to 1'600 m of vertical drop on a fabulous playground.
