Description

This is an easily accessed line as you simply turn right on top of "Pointe" chairlift, where a 10 minute hike is needed to reach the summit. The entrance of the line is really steep and need some high level skills. The exact line is optional as left side is steeper and right side less so. The line gets a lot of sun so make sure snow conditions are good enough snow before heading in as avalanche risk is pretty high due to the face exposure and the steepness. There is not many trees to stabilise the line around here, so avalanches can go low. It finishes on the red piste "Les Lanches (Morzine)" or "Les Freux" which leads back to Nyon's ski area.
