The world's scariest ski runs

January 19, 2012 · No Comments

Meet the orange runs.....

La ChavanetteThese runs have been rated as too difficult to fit in the standard classification.

La Chavanette
Le Pas de Chavanette, also known as the "Mur Suisse" or "Swiss Wall", is a particularly steep and difficult piste in the Portes du Soleil ski area, on the border between France and Switzerland.
The sign at the start of the run says "For Experts Only". It has a length of 1 kilometre with a vertical drop of 331 metres and consists of moguls throughout.
 It starts in a narrow pass on the mountain top with an inclication of 55 degrees. In winters with heavy snowfall, the moguls at the top can grow to enormous dimensions (up to the size of a small car!) because of the heavy turns people take to compensate for the inclination and narrow slope.

See what it's like to ski the wall
