Description

A steep line from the Col d'Entreporte that finishes outside the ski resort.

It needs stable snow conditions and is usually in condition earlier in the season.

From the top of the Plagnettes, Arcabulle or Transarc 2 lift, take the ridge to the top of the Aiguille Grive.

Ski the west facing descent to the Col d'Entreporte.

From the col head straight down the steep descent towards Nancroix.

The descent is steep and sustained.

As the drainage line narrows at spot height 2039m on the IGN map you need to head skiers right to rejoin the Vernettes chapelle.

From here you can continue to traverse round to the bottom of the Combe chair lift (skins handy) or if there is enough snow descend the south west facing slopes to the valley and arrange transport back to the resort.
