Description

The Pic Blanc area is located on the southern face of Pic Blanc just below Pic Blanc chairlift. There are 3 main access to the area: The first is below the top station, traverse to the left and get into the area. The second is a T-bar from the top of Pic Blanc which is sometimes in operation and gives access to the top section halfway to Pic Blanc summit, or the last one you hike until the summit. This is a fun, wide area with a lot of terrain to ride. The very top section dropping from the summit has more gradient. It is an in-resort controlled area but avalanche equipment is recommended. It is a very rocky area so watch out for snow conditions.
