Off-piste skiing Sainte-Foy-Tarentaise

COL DE GRANIER

From the top of the chairlift La Marquise you can follow the new piste of Camp Filluel. As the track becomes wider, you have to go up a hundred meters north-east to join the Col du Granier. From there switch into the huge valley of Mercuel (watch out for avalanches because the snow is always accumulated by the wind at that place). From here, there are many opportunities for skiers and snowboarders to enjoy the powder snow that allows you to make one of the most beautiful run I know. From an alpine area we go to Larch and Arolles’s forests before getting in the orchards that surrounds the village. A beautiful trip in a rich and preserved nature.

From the top of the chairlift La Marquise: 2530m. altitude.
Arrival at Sainte Foy Chef-Lieu: 1100m altitude.
Altitude difference: 1430m.

Advanced and expert level.
