From the top of Belevdere lift boot pack up towards the avalanche canon. Carry on past this and follow the ridge up towards the small Pisteur's hut. At this pass/plateau, simply drop into the large couloir for the start of the line. Towards the end, some trees appear. Keep to the skier's right to enable you to get back to the pistes.
