Ravin des Clausas Map

Just off to the skier’s right of the upper Briançon ski area is the Ravin des Clausas. A good option when the wind is howling from the north, this area offers mostly wide off piste slopes through gently undulating terrain. You can traverse as far as you like to the right but make sure you cut left again at the right time to be able to get back to the bottom of the Rocher Blanc chairlift. Otherwise you’ll have a potentially long hike on your hands. There are a few little rocks and rollers that can be fun to jump if the snow conditions are right.
