Description

A classic line, skiers left of La Tournelle. From the top of the Tournelle chair, ski close to the chair keeping right of the lift line. Follow the fall line skiers left of La Tournelle (beware of avalanche risk around the steepers slopes of La Tournelle!). Follow the line straight down the hiking path back to the Savoleyres 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.
