Le Chésery's line Map

Between 2 slopes this line is a really combination of really easy and good freeride balances including some part of steepness, at the beginning and about more than 250 meters long. Few trees will be into the line but this won't be a important amount, will be 2 part on this lower upper part with after a flat a second lower section part. Joining back the blue slope "Le Chésery" going back to the Plaine dranse plateau, where you can take the chairlifts back to the same area or the "Cornebois" area. Lower part of the line will get more chances to get some avalanches as this a longer line where important snow fall can make the face sleepy. Main danger of the line will be the navigation as if you go too much into the left a big cliff can be found where a huge drop can come in front of you. Best way is to stay quiet away from the "Cornebois" chairlift.
