Col Du Renard Map

The face is accessed via a boot pack from the top of the old Grand Renard chairlift. The easiest way to get to it is to ski from the top of the Transarc along the flat track towards Vallandry. Just before you get to the T Junction (left to Vallandry and right to 1800) you will see the piste carries on up hill. hike up this short incline and you will be stood at the top of the old chairlift. In front of you is a short 10 min boot pack through a little gully, once you reach the top you are greeted by incredible views around les arcs. If you look towards the north you will see that there is a sort of bowl/gully right below you, if you walk through this you will find a massive open face with lots of fun features, and end up directly on the piste about the Transarc Mid Station.



Slopes become slightly steeper at around 25-30 degrees.
