Description

More info


The top of the short Carina piste is deceptively steep – so steep that it may intimidate even confident intermediate riders (29° is graded black in many resorts). After the drop from Grande Rochette, the run turns right onto a much shallower gradient – or left onto the similarly steep Kamikaze down into the Champagny sector. If you find the top section too steep, just sideslip as the rest of the run is much easier by comparison. After widening onto the flatter section, the run naturally gives access to the Capella blue (right), Pollux blue (straight on) or Arnica blue (to the left). Carina is a short, fast way off the top of Grande Rochette to get back to the main Plagne Centre runs. Alternatively, taking Capella will put you more in the direction of Plagne Soleil and Plagne Villages.
