Coq's ski lift line Map

Head to the top of the right Coq's ski lift. Hike alongside the little hill of the ski lift - navigation will be easy as you just need to follow the ski lifts and then turn left as soon as you see a little gully between the trees. This line is in a forest so avalanches should not be a problem, but snow cover is often good in this part of the mountain, which is at around 1700 meters. The face does get a lot of sun so in case of higher temperatures the area will get soft quickly and can be icy at times too, especially mornings. As soon as trees section is passed the bottom of the line gives access back to the blue slope "Maxime", from where we can get access to both ski lifts and back to the village. This line is often quite tracked due to the easy access but it's a good option on whiteout powder days.
