Analysing terrain data
This piste is the only one in a huge alpine bowl that is otherwise left untouched for off-piste riders.
Starting at the col of the same name, spend a minute or two taking in the spectacular view over the huge mountains and glaciers of the Écrins national park behind Serre Chevalier.
The run itself starts out with its steepest pitch before mellowing out and following the undulating terrain until the tree line where it once again gets steeper before coming to an end at the bottom of the Vallons chairlift.
In peak periods it can suffer a little from inconsistent moguls and mixed snow conditions on that final steep section, but all in all it's a gem of a run set in arguably the most inspiring landscape that Serre Chevalier has to offer.
Anyone with any interest in off-piste can’t fail to notice the vast potential of this huge bowl.
The off-piste here varies from the mellow and regularly skied slopes to the skier’s left, to the steep and sometimes treacherous chutes and couloirs of the north facing slopes above and to the right.
