Linga's short cut line Map

From the top of the red slope "Le Linga", instead of going down the slope you need to take the track on the right side, which is usually well groomed. At the hairpin your line goes straight down, rather than doubling back on itself. The snow is usually good and well protected on this side, good powder can be found. In poor conditions this run should be avoided as it can be icy and rocky. The right hand side of the lower section of the mountain will include an optional cliff, so make sure you check the snow conditions if you are looking to take this one. The line soon gets you back to the red slope "Le linga".
