Five inalpes (moving of the cattle to mountain pastures) takes place in Nendaz at the end of spring.

Before the beginning of summer, the cows leave their cowsheds to spend the beautiful summer on the mountain pastures. They then fight in a natural matter in order to establish the hierarchy within the herd. In Nendaz, five inalpes are organised : 

  • Balavaux (Isérables): 9 June 2018*
  • Tortin: 23 June 2018*
  • Siviez: 16 June 2018*
  • Novelly: 16 June 2018*
  • Combyre-Meinaz: 23 June 2018*

Information subject to change. Dates are not confirmed until a few weeks before the inalpes : everything depends on the weather conditions and, above all, on the quality of the grass (the snow has to have gone).
