Description

This is an easily accessed line as you just take a left on top of "Mossettes-Suisse" chairlift. The line is under the chairlift and it is really steep. It gets a lot of sun so make sure snow conditions are good enough before heading in. Avalanche risk is pretty important around here. One unusual hazard to be aware of on this line are the pylons of the skis lift. It finishes on the black piste "Mossettes Noir 22" which leads back to Les Crosets ski area and village.
