Description

This run starts near Bocchetta delle Pisse and follows a nice couloir that dives into Balma. You will finish near the old lift that served Indren. Never too steep is quite enjoyable and ideal for beginner free riders. Snow usually its good because it has a north exposition. From Bocchetta delle Pisse lift just push your skis towards the little frozen lake that sits just in front of you. This first part is flat, but you will be well rewarded once you start skiing the couloir! it is not steep but the snow usually is great! You can be sure about your whereabouts because the couloir starts under a very big and characteristics rock.
