Description

A long and enjoyable run down to Le Chable which needs good snow cover and is not often in condition - make sure you know you can get down or you are in for a very, very long walk.

From La Chaux you can either traverse right alongside the pedestrian path that goes between La Chaux and Ruinettes, then leave the path and continue down, finding the route between the trees as marked.

Do not go in to the main forest, skiing here is prohibited.

Alternatively, you can ski straight down into the West facing "Fontanay" bowl and join up with the route a little lower down.

From here, continue down and join the forest road that continues all the way to Le Chable.
