Three descents to the Col des Mosses from the Pic Chaussy at an altitude of 2'351m!
Once the domain of off-piste skiing, the summit has regained the charms of solitude. The slopes of the peak, however, have not changed.
The 360° panorama of the Pic Chaussy offers an amazing view, so put on your skis and climb to the top!
A great combination of climbing from the north, descending from the south to the "La Première" chalets and then retracing your steps to the summit. Then descend the N combe or the superb W combe to the start of the Voëttes road.
