Description

Basically pretty much all the between the pistes is skiable at le Grand Serre, it is one big off piste domain. We started with the long Vallons run which is a bit like an itinerary. At the bottom the last 200m. of piste had no snow so we headed off across the fields to the village, tot was not happy as it was very warm getting back to the drag lift. We then spent a bit of time between the pistes on some jumps near the bergers on spring like snow before heading up towards the Grand Serre and an unpisted red.
