Description

From the top of Pra Neyron chairlift go left and pass a fence. Go leftwards until there are no more cliffs below you. Always keep left until you identify a more open and straight couloir inside the woods that will take you down to the Bertolini chairlift. Take care once inside the woods to choose the right line because there are some small cliffs that can be dangerous.
