Description

From the top of the Morclan's chairlift follow the red slope "Chermillon red", following the arête, instead of going down the red slope. Stay ahead the small patch of trees which will guide your navigation. Then we will go straight inside the line, without much difficulties, only some steepness will be found in the first part of the line, nothing serious at the steepest part will be around 40 degrees. We will all along the red slope "Chermillon red" during this line, as the steepest part is at the bottom avalanches risk will be higher there. Area is getting tracked slowly so this is perfect for fresh turns. Remember due to the exposure low snow covers can make it dangerous, line will join the blue slope "Chermillon Muave Milka" giving you back access to the Super chatel main plateau.
