For those who want to branch out you can use the lift system to access the substantial wide beginner slopes around Alpe d'Huez. At the end of the day cruise down a gorgeous blue and you’re back to La Villette.
The run down the Chamois from 2,700m to Oz Station via the Poutran can be a challenge, or for a true sense of achievement try the Sarenne, which is perhaps only graded black due to its length and isolation. You’ll be able to claim you’ve done the longest run in the world.
The Sarenne and Chateau Noir, the longest black runs in Europe, offer wild unspoilt scenery and isolation. The famous ‘Tunnel’ which runs straight down the front face is very steep and always a challenge and together with Les Rousses and La Fare makes up part of the 2,200m Ski Peak Champagne Run, the greatest on-piste vertical descent linked into a lift system in the world!
The off-piste possibilities are vast and varied. For a sense of remote mountain wilderness try the Glacier du Grand Sablat or Combe du Loup. The descent to Vaujany via the awesome Pyramide and Couloir Perrin is always memorable with glacier seracs, turquoise ice fall and hidden bowls.
