Description

This is a really easy short cut between slopes, where a few trees are the main dangers. The face is takes a lot of sun so remember to check the weather as this can make things unstable and bringing some avalanches. There's little steepness in this area, so it's recommended after fresh snowfall. However, the left ridge really needs to be considered all the season, especially after some big snowfall. The line brings you back to the blue slope "Abricotine", giving you access to the same chairlift.
