Sector: Vallée Blanche
Quite short, but a good warm-up run; with great views over the Vénéon Valley and across Les Deux Alpes to the core ski area.
From the wide shared start area on the ridge, stick to the skier's right past the piste-patrol cabin and descend parallel to the line of the Super Venosc chairlift. This wide upper section is really only blue-grade in profile, with a very flat mid-section ahead; so do try to gain as much momentum as you can from the start.
The piste then veers closer to the line of the lift and spills off a crest on to steeper and more exciting terrain, with lots of lumps & bumps to get your legs working; the skier's lefthand side of the slope delivers the steepest line.
The mellower lower section sweeps to the skier's left to make a good link with the nearby Pied Moutet chairlift
, although there are also a couple of options to prolong the run:
A) Hook to the skier's right, down into the tree line, to join the lower section of the Super Venosc piste
for a fast cruise to the base of the Super Venosc chairlift
; the earlier you curve to the skier's right, the steeper the descent remains.
B) Alternatively, simply glide past the base terminal of the Pied Moutet chairlift to continue the long gentle traverse out to the skier's left, across the lower slopes on the Vallée Blanche 3
towards the roadside base of the Vallée Blanche chairlift
