Description

This is an easy access line from "Creussans" chairlift; turn left and the line start already, more or less ski under the chairlift through the gully. The line is really steep in some parts and can feel like a piste in some other parts but there are some rocks about if there is low snow cover. Good weather is important due to the mix of gradients in the face. The line gets a lot of sun so make sure there's enough snow before heading in. Avalanche risk is pretty low around here but could be an issue in the steep part. The line finishes at the bottom of "Creussans" chairlift which leads back to "La Coma" area.
