This sunny ski tour destination is especially recommended when there has been fresh snowfall. The most snow-sure downhill route leads down the eastern slope into the Vallée des Fenils (Grischbach Valley). A combination with Rodomont Derrière would extend the downhill distance by quite a bit, especially if you start the tour on the hill ridge with the help of the cable cars.
