Marmottes Map

The skiing is spectacular straight from the lift. Almost immediately after starting on the Plan piste head off to the left and ski the great open terrain heading for the valley floor. Half way down make sure to take care and select the correct couloir that will lead you through the rock band and safely back to the Santons piste.
