Coq's short cut line Map

From the blue slope "Maxime"turn right 20 meters after the junction of this same blue slope and the black slope "Corbeau". Navigation is really easy as the line is between 2 patches of trees and it's always tracked after some fresh snow. This is a option in case of bad weather conditions, as speed can be taken from the blue slope. The steepest part is the middle section, then the bottom part is less steep. There aren't any difficulties on this line unless maybe some wet or frozen conditions as the line faces SW. The blue slope "Maxime" will bring you back to both Coq's ski lifts and then back to the main resort.
