Description

There is long walk to access to the top of the line for about 1 hour as you turn left on top of the "Braitaz" chairlift. The entrance of the line is really steep where good steep skiing skills are essential. It gets a lot of sun so make sure to check the snow conditions before heading in as there an be heavy snow there. Avalanche risk is really important if heavy but hard pack snow can also be found here as well due to freeze thaw. The line finishes on the blue piste "Blanchot (Torgon)" which leads back to Braitaz ski area after passing an area with some trees.
