Description

This short but well known spot is more about air than powder.

As you go up the Biollay chairlift you will almost inevitably see the runway and take off for terminal five.

As you cross over the Marquetty red run and before you arrive above Biollay Verdons blue piste there is a short steep face that drops into the bowl.

It looks like a path to nowhere but if you ski down it quickly enough you come up the other side of the bowl and transfer over the crest on your right (from the Biollay chair) towards the Saulire and Vizelle lift stations and the bottom of the Biollay Verdons piste.

Unless there is fresh snow the best line to take is always tracked out and it's a real test of your steel, the higher you drop in and the faster you go the more air you get on your flight out of Terminal 5!
