Description

This is an easily accessed line. Just go on the opposite side of the "Marcheuson" lift to the number 4 piste. The line is not too steep apart from the entrance of the bowl and can feel like a piste lower down. It gets morning sun. Avalanche risk is pretty low apart from the steepest part. The line finishes at the bottom of "Marcheuson" lift, which leads back to "Les Crosets" ski area.
