Description

This is one of the best tree runs in La Thuile suitable for almost every tipe of skiers. Get out the Gondola and keep your left, descending on a easy open slope. After having passed on the stable's left and entered into the trees, the slope gets steeper and you can also find some little cliffs to jump!. Bypass the avalanche barriers (they can become natural kickers with a lot of snow!) and ski down a quite long clearing. If you want to pass to the barn's right consider that there's cornice with a very dangerous cliff in front of it, so keep your right until you reach some green light poles and descend following their track. Once at the end of the clearing, continue to ski into the trees keeping a little bit your right to to avoid a lot of plants branches, until you reach a open space on the side of a house. From that point follow the glen on the right and keep your right, at first on a mule track and then down a summer path into the trees till you reach the green light poles track. Follow them ending your run on La Nuova (6) piste. This route it's easy and funny, but always remember that the steeper part of the run can be dangerous with unstable snow conditions. It is perfect for windy days when the upper lifts are closer and when there's no visibility. If you find this descent already tracked you can try to go down slightly more to the right or left into the trees without running any risk.
