Nothing really hard into this line, as we will follow under the chairlift 50 meters after the crossing of the red slope "46" and the blue slope "45 - Foilleuse", trees will be the main hazard so good skills are needed into some trees skiing. Line is not hard on itself just need to be aware about snow cover who can make complicated to manage, avalanches might happen however as we are trees this help to keep the area more stable. Line is located into north face so remember in case of run this area will be frozen, you will finish at the bottom of the blue slope "45 - Foilleuse" with Morgins village at the bottom of this one.
