Description

More info


To get to the Gavotte piste you need to take Becoin out of Centre followed by the tricky Crêtes drag lift along a ridge towards the summit of Le Becoin. At the top, follow the narrow path until you reach an intersection with the Gavotte run peeling left and the black Étroits dropping away to the right. Taking the official route of this run involves a lengthy traverse around the top to the right. You might be tempted to just drop in a straight line into the bowl but it’s unlikely you’ll generate enough speed to get over the long flat which follows – so you are probably better to stick to the main route. After a fairly long stretch cutting across the hill, the piste drops to the left. While the top of this run is reasonably graded red, the lower section really is no more challenging than a blue. Also watch out for the flat section after the steep – otherwise you’ll end up walking out. Gavotte is another of La Plagne’s runs marked as ‘Natur’, meaning it remains unpisted through the season so, as the bumps build, it can get considerably more challenging. The lower section of this run is used as a run-out from another two pistes in this area – the Grande Pente (black) and Java (red).
