Couloirs Trifides - Vallons de La Meije

Côtes Fines

Rocky garden
Nice sustained slopes in between Chancel and les Vallons, you arrive after a long traverse.Beautiful wild area, but windslab prone, and maybe with lot’s of rocks to hit !


Vallons de Chancel

Departure from the top of the gondola 3200m until the river at 1400m.
The easiest area, gentle slopes above the lake of Puy Vachier, but...
Watch out, even if it seems pretty obvious, you could easily get stuck above cliffs, especially near the lake.
