Sectors: Le Diable/Les Crêtes
One of the most challenging of the home-run descents
that spill off the ridges directly above Les Deux Alpes and flow all the way down to the edge of the town.
It is accessed via the Vallons 1 link track
, which starts next to the huge ridge-line pylon for the Jandri Express 1 cable car on the skier's lefthand side of the easy Cretes piste
, between Diable 2400
& Cretes 2100
. You begin by traversing to the skier's left just below the crest of the ridge, before dropping straight down the face; funnelling through a narrower, ungroomed, mogulled swath through the trees, which then widens out for the final thigh-burning section veering towards the southern end of the main base-area slopes below.
If you stay high enough at the finish of the Diable 2
, you can glide to virtually any point on the pisted meadows that border this eastern side of the resort.
NB: Le Y
is pronounced LUH-EE-GREC.
