# Beaufort at the top

Beaufort at the top of the Sybelles

The producers of the Fromagerie Coopérative Laitière de la Vallée des Arves will meet on Sunday 12 March from 11am at the summit of Ouillon to show you their trade and know-how!

About the event

Sunday March 12 from 11:00 a.m. at the top of Ouillon in the Les Sybelles ski area, the Fromagerie Coopérative Laitière de la Vallée des Arves offers you a live production and tasting of Beaufort d’alpage. You will discover this precious local gourmet heritage with sweet and fruity flavors facing Mont Blanc!

A copper tank of more than 400 liters of raw milk will be transported to the top of the slopes in order to make, in front of the skiers, a wheel of the mythical cheese nicknamed “The Prince of Gruyères”: Beaufort.

On the agenda for this day:

  •  meeting and discussions with local producers
  • demonstration and manufacture of a Beaufort cheese wheel
  • free tasting

An atypical event, not to be missed! Come in large numbers with family or friends to discover the profession of cheese maker and the love that farmers have for preserving their alpine pasture and their Sybelles mountain.
