An inspired & laudable project by Les 2 Alpes' piste management team, harnessing the steep chutes & gullies in the rocky narrow strip of sub-glacial terrain just below the Glacier 3200 level, opening them up as in-bounds freeride features.
These unique ‘Slide Zones’
features are great fun, and all visitors of good intermediate standard and above should definitely add them to their ‘must-do’ list!
Accessed via the Glacier 1
and the Glacier 6
pistes, they are lift-served by the Jandri Express 2 cable car
and the Glaciers chairlift
based at the Toura 2600 sector interchange
; the chairlift facilitates the quickest possible ‘gear-on’ circuits.
All of the zones exit on to the Jandri 4 piste
, which leads to Toura 2600.
The four distinct zones are: Couloir
; and Corniches
