Description

More info


The Tunnel piste is a signature run in La Plagne and is popular with riders of all abilities. As its name suggests, it features a tunnel which effectively links two different sectors above Belle Plagne / Bellecôte, bringing you from Roche de Mio back into the main Bellecôte bowl. The run is accessed by taking the Roche de Mio gondola, Inversens or Carella chairs. At the main Roche de Mio hub, follow the main Levasset blue down until you see a restaurant on the right (the Inversens). Here, the Levasset splits into Inversens (a red run furthest right as you’re riding down), the Tunnel (just to the left and rated blue), Sources (red and also left) or Levasset which drops furthest left (also blue). The first pitch of the Tunnel is fairly steep and can get busy with beginners picking their way down. After that, there’s a succession of steeps mixed with flat areas before you near the end of the bowl – and the Tunnel (called the Equalizer by La Plagne). You should try and ride these sections quickly to avoid walking through the tunnel however there are almost always groups gathered at the tunnel mouth – which can mean killing your speed. The tunnel is on a very slight gradient but most people find themselves still having to schuss or unclip. On the other side, the run opens into a wide and mellow, leading you down to the Arpette runs.
