Description

More info


Pistes in the Montalbert sector are pretty much all blues or reds – with the exception of the two nursery areas at the summit of Fornelet and base in Montchavin. As a general rule, the reds tend to take a more direct route down the hill and are crossed frequently by the zig-zagging blues which wind their way down the mountain. In all cases, the easiest and quickest way to access the runs is via the Montalbert gondola. The Gentil run starts from the top of a lift of the same name, though it actually goes much further past this lift, ending near the top of the Montalbert drag lift above the village. If you just want to ride the top section, you can take the Gentil drag back up – but really, you’d be far better riding down to base and taking the gondola back up. On the way down, you’ll pass under two imaginatively painted bridges as the run passes under the Grangette drag lift and Stade de Montalbert pistes. Taking the gondola back up drops you at the top of the main Montalbert blue back down – a run that soon branches into various other blue routes – a joy for intermediates. Note, all the runs in this sector are cut tracks through the trees, meaning this is a great area to come to on bad weather days. Also, the potential for first tracks after fresh snow always lasts longer here than in any other part of La Plagne.
