Ski over to the Bellavarde summit on the way to Val d’Isere then hunt for the OK downhill piste, which has been used for the Men’s World Cup in the past and kept for race ready most of the season. When it starts to get steep, traverse right, keeping as high as possible until you get round to the north side of Bellavarde. From here there are a multitude of skiing and snowboarding routes down to La Daille through various couloirs and trees. Most of the routes are not too steep and there is lots of interesting terrain – boulders, drop-offs and bowls – to play in as well as good quality snow due to the north facing slopes. The run to La Daille is straightforward, but be aware that there is often not a lot of snow on the last pitch as it faces South.
