Near Cabane Mont-Fort the trail SDS* a freind named it Shit Death Slide, the first time they rode it was cold, foggy & raining. Many tight and steep switchbacks on the latter portion of the trail can be tough in wet conditions.

Other Info:
Le Châble cable car that accesses the whole of the Verbier Bike and Bruson ski/riding area is all within riding distance.
