Sector: Vallée Blanche
The sole lift connecting the eastern & western flanks of Les Deux Alpes, allowing you to link into the Vallée Blanche sector from the main base-area slopes without having to walk or carry your kit.
Based next to the Petite Aiguille chairlift
, beside a small [free] open-air car park just off the main road at the entrance to Les Deux Alpes (Alpe de Mont-de-Lans). There is also a lift-pass sales kiosk and a comprehensive ski-area information display-board here too.
Accessible on-piste via the Petite Aiguille 1 link-route
which winds through the residential area of the Alpe de Mont-de-Lans quarter, from the Champame slope
at the northern end of the main base-area slopes; as well as by the Petite Aiguille 2
and the Cote
pistes, the latter the sole link piste from the Vallée Blanche sector.
Shortly after mounting the lift you pass over the main road, on a cross-resort journey towards the central mid-level area of the Vallée Blanche sector.
at the upper terminal, U-turn to the right on dismount for the easy ride off around the lift attendant's cabin to join the start of the Cote piste
The atmospheric piste-side Bergerie Kanata bar/restaurant
is just a short easy glide below this point: the route passing in front of its terrace is a spur of the main Vallée Blanche 1 piste
, linking to the base of the principal Vallée Blanche chairlift
which serves the bulk of the slopes in this sector. The Cote piste
also sweeps past the Bergerie Kanata building, but passes higher to the skier's left of it to swoop down the hillside behind it towards the pisted footbridge across the main road to link with the Petite Aiguille and Cote chairlifts base again.
