Combe chairlift's line  Map

From the gondolas you need to get into the red slope "La Combe"and as soon as you get into the middle of this slope, turn to the right. The real part of this line is when you will be below the red slope to the right side. You will then be between a small river below this line and the red slope on the left side. A few trees will be close to you but the area is not steep at all in this part and the only hazard is the potential for falling into the river. However to keep yourself safe, do not go lower than the chairlift. As soon as trees section is passed join the red slope "La Combe", getting back to the chairlift or going down to the bottom of the ski resort. Easy access means that this line is often tracked quite quickly and the low altitude can mean that good snow doesn't last - get on it while you can!
