Description

At the top of "Cuboré Montriand" chairlift go straight into the gully in front of you. The line is really steep at the entrance but lowr down the line can feel like a piste. However there is a streambed in the middle of the line and this can be a danger if there is low snow cover. The line gets a lot of early sun so make sure there's enough snow at the base before heading in. Avalanche risk is pretty important into the highest section due to the steepness. It finishes on the blue piste "Ripaille Bleu (skiers right of lifts)" which leads back to Champéry ski area.
