A long walk is needed to access to this line either from "Culet's" or "Chalet neuf" ski lifts until the top of "Pointe de bellevue" for about 30 minutes. The line is really steep in the first section and only can be done by expert skiers as mistake can kill you. The line is well protected from the sun so make sure the weather conditions are good there before heading in. Avalanche risk is really high into the steepest area and can take you down the full mountain's gully, Stay higher as possible as soon as the steep section is passed, to avoid to get too much time lost into the forest and some extra walk to reach the end of the line. Main aim is that the line finishes at the bottom of "Chalet neuf's" ski lift which leads back to Morgins ski area or bring you back Chatel ski area.
