How to use the ski tour guides

Description:

From the parking follow a series of paths and forest roads towards the Pra du jas, from there follow the road and then the steep path towards the Cabane du Bancus.  Before the Cabane turn west and climb up under the big rock face at le Bancus, at the top ridge turn west and climb to the summit of the pic d’Escreins.

 

Descent:

Follow your tracks down. On the ski when I mapped it, I skied the trees below the Bancus rock face straight North-ish and came to the forest road near the 1630m height, then followed this down, to a house, took skis off and walked back a short distance to ‘Ubac de l’Aval parking.
