Description

A nice pitch of skiing that is often overlooked. From the Jumbo lift station, traverse right across the hanging shoulder. At the end of the shoulder drop in to the long slope that you follow all the way down to join the red Pistes from Gentaines to La Chaux. The run faces south so gets plenty of sun so the snow transforms quickly.

Difficulty

Difficult

Serious gradient of 30-38 degrees where a real risk of slipping exists.

Low Exposure (E1)

1 out of 4

Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.

Remoteness

2 out of 4

Away from help but easily accessed.
