A steep shortcut into the Thuit Coomb from the Lac du Plan level, with a number of lines off to the sides offering a great initiation to off-piste for more progressive intermediates.
The slope has a black-equivalent profile, tamed by this red-graded piste down the safest line. It begins off the lip of the upper section of the Jandri 2
, on the upper arc of the cirque in the Thuit Coomb. You can pick almost any point to drop off on to the immediately steep & rocky slope, or simply follow the marked route of the Thuit 4 piste
itself. Check first that there is enough snow cover before riding off to the sides, and take time to plan your line down the boulder-strewn margins.
The descent finishes across a little stream gully at the edge of the Thuit 2 piste
, where you then swoop down to the skier's right to enjoy the lower section of that piste towards the Thuit
& Thuit Cretes
