Description

A forest line more or less alongside the snow park and the "Bosson's" ski lift, access is easy by taking either both Coq's ski lifts or the Bosson's ski lift. The line is easy without many difficulties alongside the piste, and the best advice is to keep some speed as the area is not steep. Avalanches should not be a risk as the slope doesn't exceed 25 degrees but the area gets tracked out quickly due to the proximity of the ski lifts. The main danger of the line is the proximity of the snow park where collisions can happen, so keep close the trees and forest area to avoid any potential for hitting other skiers.. The line finishes more or less at the bottom of the "Bosson's" ski lift (where access to the "Coq's and Bossons" ski lifts is possible) or the way down to the bottom of the ski resort to the village.
