Description

Navigation is really easy in this area of the mountain as the blue slope "45 - Foilleuse" allows you to pass under the main chairlift. As you pass under the chairlift small trees are everywhere and these are the main danger and will dictate the exact route you take. The orientation of this line helps to keep the snow fresh and the fact the line is quite high will help to keep some snow but check the weather because icy snow can make things dangerous. The blue slope "45 - Foilleuse" is at the end of the line, bringing you back to the bottom of the resort and the village.
