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 to the Col du Mont-Gele and then follow the itinerary to either join the pistes as shown or stay skiers left towards the Cabane de Mont-Fort.
