Description

This is an easy access line, just turn right on top of "L'echo alpin" chairlift and 50 meters down just cross under the chairlift. The line is really steep and some really good steep skiing skills are required as the first steep part is a hard cliff to negotiate. The line does not get a lot of sun so be sure about the weather conditions before heading in. Avalanche risk is really high in this part due the steepness. After the steep part a nice and large gully finishes the line onto the red piste "Le linga" which leads back to "L'echo alpin" chairlift and "Le linga" village.
