Description

More info


At the top of Les Verdons, you have three options for heading back down to the Plagne Centre side of the mountain: the Kamikaze red leading to the various blues off Grande Rochette, the tough Mercédès black or the more direct Verdons blue. Most people take Verdons. To ride this enjoyable, flowing blue run head left from the Verdons Nord chair (this is the most natural direction to go anyway). The run turns left into a natural gully section before turning right as it passes under Verdons Nord chair. This section is the only semi-steep section of the run and the gradient soon shallows. Towards the bottom (near the crossing with the Mercédès piste), there is a well-signposted turn-off onto the Marie Chantal blue. Alternatively, stick on the main run which joins the base of Gavotte (officially red though, really, it’s not that difficult). This run is suitable for most levels of rider and stays wide from top to bottom.
