Description

Good tree skiing in low visibility but make sure there is good enough snow cover. From the mid-station, follow the pylons before traversing skiers left (just as you reach the first trees). The traverse joins a series of bowls and gullies - you can 'follow your nose' until re-joining the traverse that comes back from Chancel.

Difficulty

Difficult

Serious gradient of 30-38 degrees where a real risk of slipping exists.

Low Exposure (E1)

1 out of 4

Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.

Remoteness

2 out of 4

Away from help but easily accessed.

Best time to visit

January, February, March, April
