Although the Montalbert blue is clearly within bounds, you may well feel like you need a guide to pick your way from top to bottom. This run intersects so many pistes on the way down that it’s actually pretty hard to follow the run start to finish without dropping onto another piste accidentally. Luckily, most of these runs are blues so intermediates shouldn’t be scared of ending up on a red by accident (the reds tend to be easy to see as they are better signposted). The Montalbert zig-zags its way from the summit of Fornelet to just above the village. The top section is easy to follow but, when you reach the point where the run becomes the Fornelet red, you should drop off to your right. The run then continues to traverse left and right until it reaches a small nursery near a road crossing and some buildings. Contrary to what seems natural, you should go right here (not the direction of the road). The piste then continues down a shallow gradient through the trees before it exits near the top of the beginner area in the village. Due to its winding nature through the trees (and abundance of side hits) this run is suitable for all levels – though intermediates obviously will get the most from it. Note – Montalbert is a great place to come after fresh snow as the snow remains untracked here longer than anywhere else in La Plagne. Also, on bad weather days, the trees provide great protection from the elements and improve visibility.
