    At the Refuge du Chaudron restaurant, continue along the hillside reservoir, then take the fork to your left, heading downhill. In the distance, you will see the twin drag lifts between the Ripaille ski slopes and the legendary Chavanette ski slope, otherwise known as the Swiss Wall. Continue down to the Le Toupin restaurant or further on to the Les Marmottes restaurant, partway up the Ripaille slope.

    Take the same path to return to the cable car.
