Description

There is one way to access to this line by the top of the Corbeau's ski lift, or in case of the slope is closed you can get there by the blue slope "Le Lac". Follow the black slope "Corbeau" then, before the middle section, turn left. Aim to get into the trees area which access the blue slope "Maxime". The line doesn't take long but feels quite isolated. Avalanche risk might be present in the lower section as there are less trees than higher up. Once the trees are done follow an opening through 2 areas of trees which finish at a flat area and then the blue piste, giving access back to Coq's ski lifts and Chatel village if wanted.
