Description

When taking either the Super Venosc or Pied Moutet chairlifts, follow the Super Venosc blue piste. After the Pied Moutet 1 red turns off to the right, a wide field opens on the right between the two runs. This area is one of the last areas to be skied after a snow fall, with most people heading up the main hill. This powder field is wide and has a similar gradient to the blue run it sits next to. You can either stay next to the piste or head further in...the field closes back up at the bottom when the two runs come back together. Be aware that the bottom of the powder field flattens off, so it is often better to aim to be back on piste before it gets too flat.
