Description

A short cut through a small gully under the Attelas chairlift. Whilst not the most scenic or interesting of lines it still goes through some interesting ski terrain. From the top of the Attelas chair lift follow the line of pylons that head down a wide gully. The small valley opens out above the start of the lift with plenty of space to choose your own line and rejoin the piste. The skiers right branch shown is slightly steeper.
