Description

From the Col Checrouit ski down the first flat part of Aretù piste. Before the steep part of the piste take a left to a nice open slope which is always closed off with a rope. Ski the ungroomed piste for 100 metres then turn right just next to some avalanche barriers. Traverse immediately right without losing altitude, just below some rock cliffs. Choose a couloir down through the woods and always drift right to make the run as long as possible. Whichever line you choose you end up on the Internazionale piste. Some lines are have denser trees and shrubs and are only good with thick snow cover.
