Foilleuse's top line Map

A good line close the ski lifts and chairlifts, snow cover will be often good here as it is just below 2000 meters. The line will be often tracked as this is easily accessed off piste but avalanche risk might be present as our line is in the middle of a gully. Steepness will be highest in the middle of the line, but other than the trees there is not much hazard in this area of the mountain. Join the blue slope "45 - Foilleuse"and head back to the ski resort of Morgins and to the "Foilleuse" chairlift or "Plan Joyeaux" ski lift.
