Description

This still remains a serious line. From the Funispace lift station, ski SW along the ridge and identify the entrance to the couloir. You can continue down under Les Attelas lift via the Creux des Eglise line if you decide conditions aren't right . The couloir is slightly shorter than the others - around 200m. Continue down to join the blue Etierces piste.
