Description

An easily accessed line. Just turn left on top of "Chamossiere" chairlift and hike until the top of "Chamossiere" summit for about 15 minutes. The entrance of the line is really steep and navigation is important as the left side has got a cliff. The line gets a lot of sun so make sure the snow conditions are good enough before heading in. Avalanche risk is pretty important on the highest part due to the steepness around here. The lower area is safer as not too steep but snow can be refrozen due to the more westerly aspect. It finishes on the red piste "L'eterlou" which leads back to Nyon ski area or "Les Gets" ski area if wanted.
