Description

More info


The aging Bellecôte glacier gondola links the main area with the imposing glacier over a 3km, 13 and a half minute journey. Starting from the summit of Roche de Mio, the lift rises gradually before dropping sharply following the natural contour of the bowls below the glacier. This is actually a two-stage gondola and the lift soon reaches the middle station before climbing again up the glacial slopes to the top station. This lift really is in need of an upgrade as cabins are small, outdated and cramped. However, the journey is more than worth it to access the highest runs in the whole area – plus the epic off-piste possible in the main bowl, as well as the famed north face of the Bellecôte glacier. Note: with the exception of the Frête blue, all the runs in this area are either marked black or red – and many remain unpisted – so the riding here really is reserved for better skiers and snowboarders. If your skills aren’t up to that, you can always ride the gondola back down after admiring the exceptional views over Trois Vallées, the Isère valley and Mont Blanc.
