Description

The snow transforms rapidly on the sunny side of the Mont Gele so you have to be quick to enjoy fresh snow here. But you can often find good spring conditions here in the early afternoon too. Descend and follow the direct line from the lift station down the south face. Follow the variable but interesting terrain down to join the pistes down to La Chaux.
