As well as using the Bergerie chair to reach the Écartee blue piste, it’s also possible to access the run from the Colosses chair. The best route (and quietest) is to take a left getting off the chair. Follow the run that passes to the left under the chair before going straight on to join Écartee. This run is traditionally one of the most popular in the whole of La Plagne and is served by the equally busy Bergerie chair. Ski schools tend to gather on this run from 10am onwards but it’s almost always busy anyway as it’s very popular with beginner / intermediate riders. Consequently, if you want to avoid queues and a cramped run, you’re often best to time doing this trail over the quiet lunchtime period. The gradient of the run is mostly very forgiving. There are two steeper pitches near the top (it’s possible to get air at the start of both), before the run becomes very flat as it passes Plagne Villages and Soleil. There are another two slightly steeper pitches just before and after the road bridge. If the second of these is slightly intimidating, you can always branch right and take a little-known (and even less-used) pathway through the trees. Both these tracks meet in the same place at the bottom where you can take Bergerie chair back up.
