We decided to follow the guide book we bought at the Tourist Office and walk up to the Lac de Gaube as well as back down, instead of using the telecabin. The round trip took us over 4 hours and the way up is called 'l'escalier' which is french for staircase. This lived up to its name - the path was clearly indicated but it went up and up in zig zags for well over and hour and a half. The view when we finally arrived at the Lac de Gaube was breathtaking. We then took the path back towards the chair lifts, but ignored them and walked back following our route on the winter ski run. For anyone wanting to have just a twenty minutes walk each way they only need to buy a telecabin ticket, go up in that, change onto the chair lift and walk along the level path to the Lac de Gaube, then back the same way. Just make sure you check the time of the last one back down.
