Description

More info


For the last few seasons, the Aollets poma has been marked as difficult. For some reason, this warning was removed last season, despite the fact the path hasn’t changed. Regardless, it’s definitely not a poma for beginner riders who will struggle to get up. The start of this lift climbs steeply on a sharp gradient out of the back of Plagne villages. Also watch out for the ‘kick’ as the Poma extends when you get on. After a tricky starting climb, there’s a relatively long section canted to the right with skiers and snowboarders crossing the path as they link between runs on the Bellecôte side and the Bridge piste down to Centre. This is followed by a short dog-leg to the right before the path goes downhill slightly – no problem on skis (just snowplough) but on a board, you’ll need to be comfortable pulling into a sideslip in order to not overtake the lift. Aollets then continues up a short incline to the top – from where you can take the Ramy or Mira piste (for Centre / Villages) or traverse over to the Trieuse to enter the Belle Plagne / Bellecôte sector.
