Le lac river line Map

This is an easy access line by the bottom of the ski lift "Le Lac" on the left of the bottom of blue slope. The line is not steep and can feel like a piste but there are some stones all along the track and trees as soon as a mistake is done from the track. The line is pretty low in altitude so make sure there's enough snow before heading in. Avalanche risk is pretty low around here but one unusual hazard to be aware of on this line are the fences of fields owner, remember a river crossing is present mostly at the beginning of the run. The line finishes on the blue piste "Retour Village" which leads back to the bottom of the ski resort.



Wide gentle slopes at around 20 degrees or less.

Medium Exposure (E2)
