Description

Along Marmottes piste and off to the left is an open run that with good snow can be great. It’s not that long – drop off to the skiers left and down the pitch. You’re heading towards a telegraph pole diagonally right where you’ll pick up a path that you follow through the trees and come out on Marmottes again.

The path is mainly flat, keep your speed up but beware as lots of lumps and bumps can form!
