This line is popular with locals because it's easy to access and fun, despite being short and it leads down to Cervinia. Drop in crossing the rope that separates the on piste boundary and follow the lower part of the easy depression, keeping some speed. Keep the same line staying until you see the wider depression extending rightwards. From here, follow it riding it on the lower or upper part, as you prefer. When you are closer to the piste watch out for hidden rocks! There are plenty here so keep your speed down.
