Corne's crossing line Map

The blue slope "Corne Bleue" helps us carry some speed into this line, but about 10 minutes walking is still required. The beginning of the line starts on top of the little line out of trees, which is the steepest and best part in case of good snowfall. People usually do not go much however so fresh snow will be here for you and the snow will be well protected as it is north facing forest. The most dangerous thing is the trees; good control is needed as a fall would be into some trees. Once out of the trees there is an opening and this is more like boarder cross skiing until you join the blue slope "Grand Fremoux". Remember before joining the slope you will pass close to a lake so do not get lost.
