Description

This is a really easily accessed line. Turn right from the top of "Chaux-des-rosées" chairlift, then follow the red slope "Les Rennes" for 50 metres before going left. The line is close to the Chésery mountain where the main hazard is avalanches due to the steepness of the mountain. Navigation is easy as the line continues straight from the bottom of the Chésery mountain. Rocks are present in the lowest part of the line and will guide the bottom of the line. The line faces north-west so there is often good snow. On the lowest section go back to the blue slope "Le Chésery" with access to the Plane Dranse plateau with the chairlift of the same name, or go down to Pré-la-Joux parking.
