Description

More info


The Pollux blue in Plagne Centre is one of La Plagne’s most popular runs, served by the equally popular Colorado chair. Access is also possible via the Funiplagne followed by the red Carina – though, due to the steepness of Carina, less-experienced riders may prefer to stick to the Colorado for access. The run itself is an accomplished beginner’s / early intermediate’s paradise and features enough terrain to keep even more skilled riders amused. In particular, after fresh snow, there are various options for beginners to try off-piste riding very close to the main run down – perfect for those early forays into powder riding. For freestyle riders, there are also masses of natural features just under the lift-line – again, very easily accessed from the main piste. These should be enough to keep even experienced riders entertained. The only drawback of this interesting run is the often-massive lift queue which can build up – particularly in busier times of the season. Of course, the Funiplagne is another option. While it too is a popular lift, it’s normally a quicker option for getting back up due to its larger capacity cabins.
