Description

There's nothing really to be worried about on this part of the mountain other than the snow cover, as there is a of sun and the base can be thin. Aim to join the red slope "Retour Village (Red)" in order to access the bottom of the ski resort. The best advice is to keep up speed in order to avoid slow turns. Remember the red slope is often closed due to the lack of snow.
