Tour de don's north face line Map

This is an easily accessed line as take red slope "L’Epervier" and follow "Tour de Don's crossing" until the top of the peak. The line is really steep into the entrance where high level steep skiing skills are required. The line gets some good amount of snow. Good visibilty is important before heading in. Avalanche risk is pretty high due the to the steepness of the peak, lower section is less steep and finishes then on the red piste "Col de Croix" which leads back to Torgon ski area.
