Open face - Past trees & turn right from top of Gron Map

From the top of Gron charlift head straight on and down Marmottes piste. As soon as the trees end turn right here – pretty much under the Molliets chairlift.

Description

The snow cover on this top bit can be a bit thin so take a look before heading in. Once in there is a short steep-ish section keeping the trees on your right and then as it opens up there is a wider more open and less steep section that you can ski.

You can head straight down anywhere here, pretty much under the Molliets chair watching out for a cat track near the bottom and join the piste where Marmotte & Blanchot meet.

Difficulty

Moderate

Slopes become slightly steeper at around 25-30 degrees.
