Around Sarezza Map

This line is more isolated than the others but it offers a great view on Monte Rosa. In order to reach this line you have to ski the piste Contenery for the first 300m, when it narrows close to the side net you have to go to the left. The first part could be exposed to avalanches! Ski the first part which runs into a small couloir, after the couloir the slope will widen and it will be less steep. From here keep your left skiing right under Sarezza peak. You will ski gentle and ample slopes here. When you start seeing the Crest lift point it and enter the woods that will bring you directly to the lift
