Clarieres Map

More of a sector than a line, The Clairieres area is relatively straight forward ski from the mid-station of La Grave. You can choose between North Easterly and more Easterly terrain, but due to the lower altitude and exposition it can heat up very quickly. From the mid-station, you can ski parallel to the cables for a short while before picking up the main bowl, or head further skiers right straight from the lift. Make sure you pick up the long traverse back to the lift through the forest or you'll be walking.
