Description

A walking access line where about 30-45 minutes will be needed to reach the peak. Turn left off the "Culet 1 or 2" ski lifts, or the right off the "chalet neuf 1 or 2" ski lifts. The entrance is really steep here and good skills will be required. A few trees are present on right side. The line doesn't get much sun and a good amount of snow can be found, which can mean that there is avalanche danger. Good weather conditions are needed to ski this line, which finishes on the blue slope "Maxime", bringing you back to ski lifts "Coq's I and II" including "Bossons" or back to the village.
