Sectors:  Diable/Cretes
Although just a contour-line link from Diable 2400 to the Lac du Plan area, this road-like traverse is noteworthy because it gives access to a cracking red-profile start to the Thuit 2 piste, one of the best intermediate-standard runs in the domain, funnelling down the middle of the Thuit Coomb.

Also, when spliced with the Jandri 2, the Bellecombes 1 provides novices with an interesting long excursion through some wild & stunning scenery.

The route begins at Diable 2400, just below the upper terminal of the 3-seater Thuit chairlift, and is easily reached on dismount either from that lift or from the nearby Cretes chairlift; it is also close to the upper terminal of the Diable chairlift, but a short inclined stroll/skate is required when approached from that level. The directional signs are subtitled as ‘Liaison Diable a Lac du Plan’; the route is well maintained and easy to follow.

About 250 m (274 yd) from the start, the red-profile upper section of the excellent Thuit 2 run drops away into the coomb to the skier's left; otherwise, keep gliding straight on. The rest of the route runs gently through the wild & rocky scenery of this glacially carved landscape, eventually swinging to the skier's left and dipping down on a slightly steeper pitch to the edge of the Lac du Plan, by the base of the Bellecombes chairlift, joined by traffic from the skier's right from the finish of the Bellecombes 5 run.

To continue the circuit to Cretes 2100, follow the signs for the Jandri 2, through the cutting ahead-left.
