Les Rhododendron's line Map

A really nice, wild line with easy access from the black slope "Les Rhododendrons", this line is in the middle of this slope to the right. To the right you'll be able to see trees and a river. The line lies below 1600 metres so only go here if there is sufficient snow cover. Trees keep this area quite safe from avalanche and navigation is quite simple - just stay between the river and the pistes. The line finishes on the red slope "Le casse-noisette", which brings you down to the chairlift Pierre longue.

Difficulty

Severe

Steep skiing at 38-45 degrees. This requires very good technique and the risk of falling has serious consequences.

Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.
