Description

Both chairlifts will bring you to the top of this line, but the entry to the line is optional meaning you can use another entrance with less or more steepness. Keep in mind where the blue slope"Mossette"is, as a navigation mistake can bring you down into crashing a ridge. Higher part will be the steepest of or line where good skills are required, north face will make sure some fresh snow will be present, area will be often tracked as many peoples will go into this area. Lower part will be without much steepness where you'll be able to find few trees, access to blue slope "Mossette" will bring you back to "Brocheaux" chairlift.
