Savoleyres - Tournelle Right Map

A classic line straight down the fall line, skiers right of La Tournelle. From the top of the Tournelle chair, leave the piste and stay as high as possible, traversing to the right. Follow the line straight down to the narrow clearing in the trees, continuing down to the hiking path which returns to the Savoleyres cable car or follow the line all the way down to the Verbier Sports Centre where you will need to catch a bus back to town or the lift system. 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.



Serious gradient of 30-38 degrees where a real risk of slipping exists.

Medium Exposure (E2)
