Gron Off Piste Map

As you head back towards Les Carroz on Cupoire pistes pick up signs for the black run Veroce but don’t double back on yourself; head straight on and keep right and you’ll find yourself at the top of an open area.

Description

This is a fairly open face that with good snow on lends itself to several fresh tracks – it can slide on here so be careful and there are several small trees and undergrowth about so take it easy!

You can take a look at this from the Gron chair – looking right as you get to the top third.

If you keep left it opens up a bit more, keeping left you’ll end up under the Gron chair and there are more trees. Either way you’ll end up back on Combe piste.

And then this can lead to….
