Ecoti's line Map

This is easily accessed from the top of the lift of the same name, skiing roughly next to the lift itself, through the trees. The main hazard is looking out for others as you cross the "Culet's" piste. This is also an opportunity to get some air off the edge off the piste into the fresh stuff the far side of it. The rest of the line is close to the ski lift and into the trees, close to a little river on the right side. You then cross the "Ecotis" ski lift after few turns into a small virgin patch, soon getting back to the blue piste "Ecoti's 49" with the possibility of linking into the "Culet's line".
