Roof avalanches can be a serious danger. In Texas a woman managed to catch the exact moment slabs of snow slide from this roof. Luckily there was no-one underneath because a parked car was destroyed by the urban avalanche.
The snow cover is thin below 1600 m so this seemed like a good plan to go powder hunting on north and west slopes. In fact the power was in the NW->W sector, the N slopes having been scoured by the foehn on Monday.

if the snow cover is sufficient try to follow the path through the forest to the cross country ski trails at 1420 meters. Follow the trails to the Forest Caban then a right hand hairpin at 1520 meters.
