Description

A great view followed by some relatively gentle but flowing skiing. If snow conditions allow you can rejoin the valley through some narrow couloirs but generally it's better to take the forest path back. A short 30 min or so hike to the Aiguille Grive gives access to some great views over the resort. Descend the west facing slope towards the Col d'Entreporte but don't actually go to the col, continue down the wide open rolling terrain known as the Combe de Grangettes. Follow this west facing bowl until it meets with Carro Blanc route.
