La Chaux line Map

This line is really easily accessed as it's really close the Blue slope "La Chaux (Abondance)", and it gives access to some nice fresh snow with a little of bit of steepness. The line is steep at the top and then again at the bottom. The line lies below 1600 meters and snow cover can be sometimes weak, which can worsen the consequences of a fall. The line finishes with a small steep part which gives access back to the blue slope "La Chaux (Abondance)".
