route_description

Good option for unsure weather conditions or higher avalanche dangers. The path doesn't go too high or get much exposure. Other than that the trip loses a lot of charm due to the direct neighborhood of the skiing station, which also adds quite a lot of the tracks on the descent. The top is rather exposed to the wind so this might be the cold part. If conditions are fine continuing to the Grand Croisse Baulet is possible.

Anyway, a nice trip through the forest, small descent in good powder and a summit as well. One doesn't need to start very early, but it gets a bit crowded.

weather and conditions


Low cloud, strong western wind in the final ascent part.


A lot of fresh snow, around the lifts quite tracked, higher up still fine. Windblown on top.

personal comments

  • Would make much more sense with some alternative descent or if the lifts are closed.
  • The way up by car might be tricky after a recent snowfall.
  • If conditions are fine, I'd consider taking the lifts to get most of the way up and then just continue to the Grand Croisse Baulet.
  • on the way back a bit of horizontal traverse and some uphill parts
