Fignard's line Map

This is an easily accessed line but some "pushing" is needed turn right from blue slope "Lac Léman (Torgon)" 50 meters below the rescue house which leads to a long traverse. The line is not steep and can feel like a piste but there are some rocks about if there is low snow cover so make sure there's enough snow before heading in. However in good snow the line is away from the sun and can keep it fresh due to the North aspect. Avalanche risk is pretty low around here due to the lack of steepness and the low altitude. The line finishes on the blue piste "Fignards" which leads back to Torgon village.
