Les Rossets Map

Several variations of route exist through slightly complex terrain linking the easiest slopes through a steep mountainside. Careful route-finding is required and the whole area should be avoided after heavy snowfall. From directly behind the restaurant at the Roche de Mio summit, ski open bowls and rolls, bearing leftwards to avoid the lower cliffs. Turn the snowy ridge on the left, ski into the wide, steeper funnel below, which runs out to the Chalet de Bellecôte lift in the valley bottom.
