Auffaz junction line Map

Take a left on the second flat section towards the bottom of blue slope "Retour Village". The line is not steep and can feel like a piste but there is often a lack of snow cover so make sure there's enough snow before heading in. Avalanche risk is pretty low around here but one unusual hazard to be aware of on this line is the wooden bridge before the line finishes on the green piste "Auffaz" which leads back to Abondance village.
