Le Pas de Chavanette - The Swiss Wall

The piste of Le Pas de Chavanette - called «Le Mur Suisse» (The Swiss Wall) by French skiers - is one of the most impressive in the world. Although only one kilometre in length, it descends 400 metres. An incline of almost 50 percent is not uncommon, which is why this piste is only for very experienced skiers. Following heavy snowfall, skiers contend with moguls of up to two metres in the upper portion of the Wall.
