Vernant Right Map

From the top of Vernant chair lift you can find a couple of lines back down to the bottom.

Description

Be careful as there are cliff bands halfway down and only a couple of ways through.

The first half is easy as you just cut back in under the chair by either turning left or right and back on yourself.

In fresh snow this pitch can be superb and if there hasn’t been any snow then you’ll usually find some great moguls!

Keep right and stay above the gully, this brings you back across towards Dolomie piste way over to your right at the moment. Once clear of the gully head towards the trees – keep them on your left and don’t be tempted to go into them. Skirt round the trees to find a run that is either great powder or bumped up and you’ll be back at the bottom of the Vernant chair.
