Jolanda Map

Wonderful off-piste amongst the steep forest around the Jolanda chairlift. With many lines to choose from and reliable snow cover, this area is a great choice after a big snowfall. In spring time however, this south facing slope looses its snow very quickly.

Description

From the top of the Jolanda chairlift, head out to the right and ski into the forest. Take the best line and descend directly downhill to reach the little old village of Netscho. Continue down, curving round to the right where the terrain becomes steeper, until you reach an artificial valley in the bottom of the wooded area. Gressony lies just beyond.
