Aiguille Rouge - Cables Map

A mega-classic of Les Arcs and Paradiski. The line is steep and serious, often rocky and a fall could be ugly. But for the right skier in the right conditions the line offers some amazing skiing directly under the lift. Ski straight from the summit of the Aiguille Rouge under the cables of the cable car. Follow the fall line and rejoin the Arandelieres piste.



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

Medium Exposure (E2)
