Description

By the end of the flat section on the blue slope "Chalet neuf", you need to turn into the right. The biggest patch of trees is the key part of the line, as this is where you have the biggest area of steepness where a drop can be taken if wanted. At the steepest part there can be small avalanches so in case of snowfall some precautions need to be taken in this part of the mountain. Snow conditions are often good in this part of the mountain as it is over 1700 meters. Trees are the only main hazards including the entrance of the steepest part, and once this section is done it's easy to reach the blue slope "Chalet neuf", where access to both Chalet neuf ski lifts is possible.
