Description

Another easy access line just turn left and go under the "Braitaz" chairlift as soon as green slope "Marmotte" cross the chairlift. The line is not steep and can feel like a piste but there are some rocks about if there is low snow cover and trees as well. The line gets a lot of sun so make sure there's enough snow before heading in due to the south exposure. Avalanche risk is pretty low around here, line finishes at the bottom of "Braitaz" chairlift, which leads back to the top of "Braitaz" ski area.
