The Petit Combin (3,672 metres of altitude) is located on the border between the Val de Bagnes and the valley of Grand St. Bernard. Looking from Verbier, the Petit Combin is the flat summit with steep slopes down its north face, to the right of its big brother, the Grand Combin (4,314 metres).
From the top of the Petit Combin, the view stretches 360 degree from Mont-Blanc to Metterhorn, with the Bernese and Vaud Alps in between. Looking south, the view of the great and imposing glacier on the north face of the Grand Combin opens up in front of your eyes.
The Petit Combin offers many different freeride runs, depending on the chosen itinerary.
The classic descents do not present special difficulties and they lead down to the village of Fionnay via the Corbassière glacier or to the village of Bourg St.-Pierre via the glacier of Boveire.
The descent on the Follats Glacier gets very popular, only in case there is enough snow to bridge over the crevasses.
For those who would like to ski tour as well, the Col des Otanes and the Col l’Ane provide some beautiful skinning options.
