Description

Ski Boulevard slope until you arrive at Chetseron Restaurant. Go to the left side of the restaurant and here you will find the access to the run. All the forest is clear. The best part is on the left where there is a couloir between the trees, but in the trees is also fun and open. The forest finishes after around 200 meters, but you will re-enter it. Again it will finish and in front, crossing the Merbe lower slope, you will have again an open run, where we will keep going to the left for another open forest, to finish in Chetseron slope. If there is a lot of snow the first steep part may have some avalanche risk, and snowboarders will have problems to traverse in the flat parts.
