Description

More info


At 7km in length, the Mont Blanc blue must be one of the world’s very best intermediate pistes. The run starts high above the Montchavin treeline at the top of the Mont Blanc and Dos Rond chairs and passes all the way down past the Vanoise Express and satellite of Les Coches before terminating around 1km lower at the village of Montchavin itself. Along the way, it zig-zags through some of the most impressive scenery in all of the La Plagne / Paradiski domain with beautiful views across to the Mont Blanc massif over the Isère valley. Advancing beginner riders should manage most of this piste fairly easily as there are only a couple of slightly testing sections on the way down. Mont Blanc may not be the most difficult of pistes but even intermediate / advanced riders should still enjoy the ride down. It’s definitely a run worth doing for every level of rider. There are various options for getting back up to the top – though the easiest and most direct is via the Montchavin chair followed by Pierres Blanches and either the Plan Leschaux drag lift or slow Dos Rond chair.
