Description

A wonderful off-piste route through the trees that makes for an awesome powder descent.

From the top of the Punta Jolanda chairlift, head to the right into the forest and ski down to the left. After a long traverse to the left you will see the bottom of the Netscho valley. Ski straight down until you reach the bridge across the river, and join the itinerary coming down from the Gabiet to the Netscho valley. Follow it to Gressoney village.
