From Cry d'Er take the Pas du Loup red piste and after the flat part you will see a cabane on the left side. You traverse just above the cabane where you will see the access to this run. The first part is wide and open, where you can go to the right and enjoy a few small drops, or to the left where it is steeper but with much more avalanche risk. When you get to the trees, if you continue straight ahead, you will get to a sketchy but fun pillows run. Alternatively you can go to left where where it is still open and easy to ski.
