Description

Everybody seems to end up at Aiguille de Fruit at some point during a week in the three valleys and everybody looks at the line underneath the chair and thinks, ''that looks fun''. And luckily, it's easy to get to. From the top of the Aiguille de Fruit chair take the blue Altiport run and as it joins Cave des Creux red run cut right towards the Aiguille de Fruit lift line, making sure you head around the protected grouse area. You'll start off on a shallow wide open face where you can pick your turns at your leisure before coming to the tree lined route below the chairlift. As you get closer to the chair station itself cut right and ski to either Roc Mugnier or if you fancy, Aiguille de Fruit to do it all again.
