A fun but slightly broken line through the trees of the lower part of Les Grands Montets. Ski under the Lognan cable car cables and gradually drift right, staying to the right of a deep rocky gully throughout, to rejoin the pierre à ric piste.



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