Sanglier Map

Take a left at the top of the Saumet draglift and begin to follow the black ‘Craba’ piste. After the first markers, where there is a net to protect skiers from a small rocky area, turn right. This run is between the black pistes of ‘Craba’ and ‘Sanglier’. It is quite steep and you will ski through a small forest. If you do a couple of runs in this area you will be able to find some small jumps and some steeper parts. This is a great spot after snowfall to enjoy some powder lines. If the avalanche hazard is high, the ski resort won’t usually open this lift. At the end of this run you will end up on the blue piste ‘Vista Beret’. This area has so much diversity, you ski it many different ways, it is like a small freeride park!
