The popular itinerary run directly below the Chassoure gondola is commonly referred to as ‘Tortin’. Proximity to the gondola means you are almost certain to find a giant mogul field here.
Luckily, the north-facing bowl is exceptionally shaded, and the moguls well formed, so you can expect good skiing on firm but grippy snow.
This is generally considered to be the most challenging marked itinerary run in the Verbier but compared to some of the proper off-piste skiing it is relatively tame. The first part is a little steep and at times very busy. Giant moguls and unsure nervous intermediates are likely to be the biggest obstacles.
Content collected from the Freeride Verbier book, it is available in the tourist office and the ski shops.
Please note :
Itineraries are officially designated off-piste routes, marked on the piste map as yellow lines, a single line of yellow poles in the snow marks the direction of an itinerary route. Itineraries are bounded 20m on each side of the yellow poles.
