A tour of the pistes and off pistes of the old "phantom village". The village was demolished this autumn so to some extent it is much less interesting but it opens up a much more skiable off piste area to the right of the main ski runs looking down the mountain.


Hard snow at 10am. About 30cm depth at 1000 meters. Spring conditions on the sunny slopes, slushy even on SE facing runs. Good skiing. Off piste is ok where there are priori tracks, a bit slushy elsewhere at 11am. Zero iso at 2400 meters this afternoon. No wind.
