description

A ski tour that works at the end of the season when the road up to the Emosson dam is open. Otherwise one needs to start at the barrier at Lechere, just above the village of Finhaut, (1440m instead of 1900m)

Route
From the parking at the Col de la Geulaz (1900m) at the top of the Emosson dam road, descend on foot and cross the dam (road) to the start of the path up the Veudale valley. Follow this, SW, continuing up where it narrows after which you can choose to go left or preferably right if there is an avalanche risk. Near the col de la Terrasse, go S towards the obvious pylon which is next to the summit of the Point de la Terrasse.
Descent
By the same route.

remarks

After ascending the Veudale valley an alternative is to ascend the Cheval Blanc.
See the French description for more information on starting from Finhaut.
