Barbossine's sunny line Map

From the top of the Morclan's chairlift follow the red slope "Folière", keeping up the speed to turn left 50 meters after passing the black slope "Barbossine". The first part of the line is close to some trees that make it quiet safe and enjoyable, and other than some steepness there aren't really any hazards. Once the trees section is passed remember area is into the long line where avalanches can take place really easy. This is what will the biggest danger is this area, as we are around 1900 meters some nice snowfall can appeared here what will make it more dangerous, otherwise with some foehn wind area can get really wet what can make some wet avalanches going as well. Line will be about 200 meters long and will join the black slopes "barbossines" what will give you back access to the "barbossine" chairlift. Good skills welcome into this part of the mountain, as line is well expose to avalanches.
