Petit Fond Blanc Map

A mini-adventure best enjoyed with a hike to the summit of the Petit Fond Blanc to take in the steeper couloir at the start - which faces north and keeps great cold snow for a long time. After the initial steeper slope you reach a flat section before another great pitch down the open forest back to the Vallee de l'Arc piste or Bois de l'Ours lift.



Serious gradient of 30-38 degrees where a real risk of slipping exists.

Low Exposure (E1)

1 out of 4

Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.
