Description

Another short cut between trees bringing us back to the main plateau and the green slope "Petit Fremoux". There's nothing dangerous or difficult into this area unless there's a lack of snow (which is possible given how much sun this area gets). The area is not steep and trees will offer you few turns but the snow can be wet if the weather is warm, or it could be a bit frozen in the morning. The end of the line will bring you back to the main area, with good access to main plateau area.
