In this video you can see the way to ski back to the chalet. You can ski back from the Pleney ski area. The Belvedere, Nabor or Mouilles chair lifts will carry you up high enough to easily ski down and join the Chardon Bleu piste which you can see on the piste map. You can however also skate along the crest of the hill towards Pleney from the top of the Fys and Folliets lifts to join the Chardon Bleu piste.
Once on the Chardon Bleu piste, you can ski down to a point where the piste tracks alongside the Chemin de Nabor road. From here, depending on the amount of snow on that day, you can make it right down to the door of the chalet. Do check the amount of snow on the road before leaving the piste, if there is not enough snow you can stay on the piste and it will take you to the parking at the bottom of the Folliets lift where the bus or a short walk can bring you home.
