Attelas - James Blunt Variant Map

This is a popular freeride skiing route which is generally considered to be severe. It's remote, it features medium exposure (e2) and is typically done in an unknown time of year. From a low point of 2 km to the maximum altitude of 2.5 km, the route covers 904 m, 0 vertical metres of ascent and 465 vertical metres of descent.


Two slightly steeper options from the classic James Blunt line under the Attelas chair lift with a bit more skiing to join the Etierces or other pistes down to Carrefour. From the narrowest point in the gully, head diagnonally right to join two narrow lines between the rocks.



Steep skiing at 38-45 degrees. This requires very good technique and the risk of falling has serious consequences.
