Coqs trees Map

This tree line will suck you in time and again if you're on your way to Courchevel 1850 from La Tania or Meribel Altiport/Village. As the Anemones and Chenus pistes cross with Loze Est there is a shallow open field that the Coqs chair goes directly over. Cut between the pistes and head down towards the lift line, as the trees come into sight you can head into them either directly under the lift or to the left and come out on to bottom of the Anemones run. Or you can head to the right and come out on the Lac Bleu run. Either way you'll find tight turns amongst the trees and the closer you get to returning to the piste the steeper it gets.
