Description

Chamonix doesn't have much tree skiing but this may be some of the best.

The terrain is wild and serious and can be hard to navigate.

From Plan de l'Aiguille link gullies, bowls and rolling terrain to the head of a large bowl.

Follow this into the forest then traverse right into the bed of the gully.

After a short pitch traverse left back into the forest.

Follow the clearing which then leads you back right and down through open glades to a 4x4 track.

This zig zags back to the parking lot.

Whilst much of the skiing is in the trees, there is still avalanche risk on the route.
