Description

A variation on the classic Ba Bowl. Never too steep or serious and still a good adventure - but you'll need to walk a little for this one. From the Col des Mines, walk to the small summit above at 2402m (10-20mins). Ski down the ridge from the summit either to where the avalanche barriers finish or the lowest point in the ridge between pt 2402m and the Tete des Etablons. Turn left and ski down the fall line to join the blue piste back to Carrefour.
