Description

A direct line following the pylons of the Savoleyres cable car. From the top of the Savoleyres cable car follow the line of the lift. Half way down, around 1900m, head slightly to the right leaving the lift line. Continue down to join the hiking trail which takes you back to the cable car station. The skiing here is often good early season after a fresh dump of snow. The grassy slopes don't need much snow cover to make for good skiing. Later in the season, whilst you get to enjoy the sunny skiing, the snow suffers due to the South facing aspect.
