Description

At the top of the "Chermillon" ski lift, follow the blue slope "Chermillon Muave Milka" but instead of carrying on right with the blue slope, continue straight. Speed needs to be taken and kept to join this line as our line is quite flat. There aren't any difficulties here - the only hazards will be a few trees. The line is just around 1700 meters and snow cover should good here. The lower part of the line is more playful as it is less flat. The line brings you back to the blue slope "Le Lac (Chatel)" where you can get to the Super Chatel plateau.
