Description

There are not many ways to access this area, the only one being the "L'essert" gondolas, from where you will have to follow the red slope "Retour Village".

This slope is often closed due the lack of snow so in most of the cases you will be already off piste as soon as you go below the gondolas.

Navigation could not be easier as you just follow the gondolas line to the trees.

The line is at around 1300 meters so snow cover can be weak and the base thin as well.

The line is on the east side so the area is often soft but avalanches won't be a problem here.

The run finishes on the blue slope "Retour Village" that will bring you down to the bottom of the ski resort where you take the Gondolas again.
