Corne Bleue lake's line Map

An interesting line giving us access to a mix between a little section of steepness and forest, blue slope "La Chaux (Abondance)" will bring us until the top of the "Le lac" ski lift. Best way is to keep our speed as the highest than possible. Little 5 minutes walk will be required, top of the line will be the steepest part, keep an eyes on the weather conditions might happen into this part as we are going to ride a ridge face. Line will join a forest area giving us some good turns and going back to the bottom of the "LE lac" ski lifts, altitude is not too high however some attention still required.
