Description

This is an easy access line take right from top of "Cornebois" chairlift, and hike until the top of "Col de bassachaux" for about 20 minutes. The line start here and got some steepness on the highest part with good navigation is needed as mistake can make you fall. Where rocks are present with high level of avalanche risks, the line is quiet away from the sun keeping the snow fresh, area is pretty away from the slope so fully autonomous skiers only should be there. Usual hazard to be aware on this line are the trees at the lower part of the run. The line finishes on the red piste "Les Rochassons" which leads back to the bottom of Pré-la-joux after a long lower section into the forest.
