Description

More info


At just under 1km in length, the Pelées isn’t exactly the longest black run in the world, however taken as whole along with the Pierres Blanches at the top and Mont Blanc at the bottom, it can make for quite an interesting route. Access is off a fairly well-hidden drop-off from the Pierres Blanches a little way after the run turns back to the left. You’ll see a gap in the trees on the right – though it’s not particularly well sign-posted so you do need to be aware to avoid missing it. The start is pretty shallow before the run turns left and it starts to get steeper. However, even then, this really isn’t the steepest of blacks and the real challenge normally comes from the bumps rather than the gradient. Pelées is another La Plagne’s runs marked as ‘Natur’, meaning it doesn’t get pisted. Consequently, the moguls get bigger and bigger the longer the season progresses. At the bottom, you can either take the Pierres Blanches chair back up or continue onto the Mont Blanc blue. In fresh snow, you’re often better heading into the trees near the top of this run to get a steeper gradient and more rewarding ride.
