Leave the Cretes piste and head right in to the bowl just skiers left of the chair line. Cross the Violettes piste and continue down the open slopes keeping close to the chair line, with it always on your right. When you reach the drainage line a little under halfway down the chair, follow this and then track back right to join the bottom of the lift.
