Chamossière chairlift line. Map

An easily accessed line as the line is under the Chamossière chairlift. The line is not steep except the middle section but needs some important steep skiing skills as a cliff needs to crossed. Navigation is important as the left side has got a ridge. The line gets a lot of sun so make sure the snow conditions are good enough before heading in. Avalanche risk is pretty important into the steepest part due to the steepness around here and the presence of cliffs. Lower section is less steep, but remember the line can be refrozen due to the aspect. It finishes on the red piste "Arbis" which leads back to Nyon ski area or Les Gets ski area if wanted, by "Charniaz Express" chairlift.
