That was actually an existing feature - a transport route from the coast 
to the French Concordia station - you can even marginally see it on the 
LIMA mosaic if you look closely:

The tagging might of course be considered wrong - it could be more like 
highway=track and surface=snow but for the standards of the region 
highway=secondary might even be an understatement.

The map could use an update of the coastline file.
