Chalet neuf lift line Map

From the top of the Chalet Neuf ski lifts, the line is easy to follow as it stays alongside the ski lifts. The first section is a long part which is not steep and where speed needs to be kept. Our line really starts in the middle part where things get a bit steeper, best on skiers L of the lifts where nice turns can be done. There are small trees on the way and crossing a track is necessary on the steep section. Having crossed the steep section, access to the blue slope Bellevue is possible. This is the blue slope at the bottom of the restaurant, giving us access back to the bottom of the ski lift Chalet Neuf. Remember this line is close to some ski lifts and mistakes might lead to some collisions. Good snow cover can be found in this part of the mountain, where the line is over 1700 meters.
