Description

More info


Col de Forcle is a long, extending pole drag lift out of the Belle Plagne sector which gives access to most of the Belle Plagne bowl, including the freestyle park and Leitchoums. However, a much-overlooked aspect of this tow is it can also be used as a very quick, very quiet way of getting over to the Champagny sector over the back on the hugely enjoyable Geisha piste. If you’re staying in Belle Plagne, a top tip to avoid excessive queues is to take the short ride from the top of the village down to the Belle Plagne carpet, then head right and ride down to the foot of the poma. Taking this route, you’ll be making turns while everyone else is still stuck in queues.

The Col de Forcle is currently marked as difficult – however, that’s more down to the length of the lift and dog-leg right half way up. Most riders of reasonable ability should handle it just fine.
