Brevieres Trees Map

The zone beneath the Sache Bubble, defined on three sides by the Chardons and Pavot reds and Myrtilles blue is Tignes’ primary tree-skiing staple on storm days. Easily scoped on the way up the bubble, the most obvious (and therefore most trafficked) route is directly beneath the bubble, with various options into the trees on either side.

Description

Tread carefully on your first run down as there can be a number of cliff bands/pillows/tree stumps to negotiate on your way down- hazards or bonus points depending on your viewpoint and prevailing snow conditions.
