Description

From the top of the Ranfoilly Express turn right and bootpack a couple of hundred meters up the ridge to the summit of Ranfoilly. From the top a number of lines can be ridden down the various faces/gullies - all initially fairly steep. Once at the bottom keep left, heading towards a small rounded knoll (keep some speed here; it's flat). Once you reach the knoll descend down through the trees - you've got Reine De Pres piste to your left and Tulipe piste to your right so it's hard to get lost. Watch out for rocky gullies in the woods.
