Description

More info


The Petite Rochette blue is a hugely enjoyable run round the back of Grande Rochette which gives even very early intermediate riders the chance to experience all-mountain riding in a safe and easy environment. To access, head left from the top of the Funiplagne Grande Rochette and continue down the wide piste until there’s a natural break, with one run going right (going left takes you onto Mira and back down to Plagne Centre). The Petite Rochette is a winding path which crosses into the Champagny sector, round the back of the main area. It features various switchback turns, zig-zagging in direction until it reaches a junction at the top of the Col de Forcle drag lift with three options:

  • Go straight on here (slightly left) to drop into the Plagne Bellecôte / Belle Plagne sector on the Leitchoums piste.
  • Walk a short way forward to the right to access the Belle Plagne snow park.
  • Double back on yourself at the switchback junction to ride into the Champagny sector on the very isolated (but very enjoyable) Geisha piste

This whole side of the mountain is massively underdeveloped giving huge potential for off-piste riding when the conditions are right – just drop off the side of the Petite Rochette for some of La Plagne’s best, most accessible off-piste routes.
