Athlete training

The Fauge valley is regularly used for training by Vercors athletes. "We often have long training sessions during the long, hot summer days, when biathletes do most of their annual training volume. The aim is not to look for performance but to get your body working for a long time at low intensity to develop your capillary network and multiply your mitochondria, etc... To combine these training days with shooting, I sometimes ask a coach to take my equipment to the shooting range in Corrençon, and meet him there after a training run". Marie Dorin-Habert

Col Vert

Between the Roc Cornafion (2049 m) to the north and the Gerbier ridges (2019 m) in the south, the Col Vert is a breach at 1766 m of altitude allowing to join the Trièves. Formerly, this passage was taken by the Trièvois who would buy in the spring and autumn their cows of the city race at the fairs of Quatre Montagnes, while Du Trièves, Claix and Varces rose from the brandy and wine for the inhabitants of the Vercors. The ruin resting on the rock of the Vert Pass testifies to a place of arrest for these exchanges.
