Description

A really easily accessed line - just go under the "Pré-la-Joux" chairlift. The line is pretty steep in the middle section, otherwise more or less like a red slope. There are some trees all alongside the line and these are the main hazard. The line faces NE so there can be low snow cover and avalanche risk is important around the steep section, although trees help keep it safer. One unusual hazard to be aware of on this line are the pylons of the chairlift. The line finishes at the bottom of "Pré-la-Joux" chairlift.
