On paper (and on the piste map), the Route des Bauches sounds like a long, enjoyable excursion through the outer reaches of the main area. The reality is slightly different. Yes, this piste is long – but at times you’ll likely end up wishing it was shorter. The Route des Bauches is a very long, very flat pathway along the valley below Roche de Mio and the Bellecôte glacier until it curves round the front into the Montchavin sector. You will frequently have to unclip and walk or schuss along the flatter sections. Unless cross-country is your thing, we’d recommend steering well clear.
