Main Face Map

From top of the Cote Brune Chair lift ski down the Venturon piste around 250m. As the run bends to the right you need to go off the piste and into a bowl. Stay high around the bowl and traverse all the way around it leading you to a little col where you find a small bowl. Ski any line down the bowl, more rocky to skiers right. This takes you to another col where from here you can access a wide open east facing slope. Even if you traverse across to your left to get a fresh line, it still all leads back to a shallow gulley which takes you back to the near bottom of the Venturon piste. Its a cracker!
