Suisses Moguls Map

When heading up the Suisses chair lift look to the right for some fun looking off piste close to the lifts, resort and runs. There are lots of options to any one wanting to get fresh tracks on a powder day, although due to its easy access and prominent visibility it often gets tracked by midday. However then something great happens, people keep skiing it and a nice even pitched mogul field forms with evenly spaced moguls.

Description

If you are a mogul skiing fan and are in Courchevel then its a must. At the top of the Suisses lift go right along the cat track and then drop down into the bowl just 20-30 meters from where the lift was and enjoy the run all the way back onto the Suises black run. If there has been allot of snow cover after the first mogul field do not head back to the run but traverse left along the flatter section until you hit another mogul covered steeper section then cut back onto the last flat bit of the Suisses Black run and back to the lift for round to if your legs are still up for it.
