Foilleuse's top entrance line Map

From the the top of the red slope "46" this is a nice line giving access to some good steep skiing before getting back to the red slope "46". Access to the face requires a 5 minutes walk. The line is mostly around 2000 meters and the snow cover should be good. The exact line is up to you and there are a few trees in the middle of the line and this middle section is the steepest. This north facing line keeps the snow good and fresh. At the end of the line, head back to the red slope "46", that will bring down the ski resort of Morgins and to the village.
