Les Renard's shortcut Map

An easily accessed and shortcut line. Take a left 200 meters after you enter into blue slope "Les Blattins" from top left of "Chaux-des-rosées" chairlift. The line is not steep and can feel like a piste but there are some good navigation skills needed as mistake can finish by falling from a ridge if you going to low into the line. The line gets a lot of sun so make about the snow conditions before heading in as snow can be heavy or either frozen. Avalanche risk is pretty low around here due to the lack of steepness. The line finishes on the black piste "Les Renards" which leads back to the same chairlift or Plaine Dranse area.
