Analysing terrain data
This run off the Cibouit chairlift is a real black.
Expect big moguls, the odd exposed rock (thankfully generally marked with yellow and black danger poles) and steep pitches, particularly at the start.
It is also in full view of the chairlift above so don’t let the fact that everyone’s probably watching you put you off! The powers that be use this run and the off-piste around it as the exam site for would be ski patrollers.
Watching them hurtling down the run trying to impress the judges is something else.
But there’s no need to try and match them – just getting down with any sort of style is a good result.
