La familiale et la vallée perdue

Accessible by the Tufs chairlift or the Toviere gondola lift (ex-aeroski) on the Tignes side or by the Tommeuse chairlift on the Val d’Isere side, the route of La Familiale starts from the top of the head of Toviere which separates naturally Tignes and Val d’Isere ski area.

With good slopes facing south and east, the route of the well-named family starts at the arrival of the Combe Folle ski lift. From there, it joins by sneaking between the sinkholes characteristic of the limestone subsoil of the sector, the plateau of the altisurface, that it is better to approach while remaining at the bottom of the natural half-pipe before forking on the right to join the lost track without pushing too hard.

For adventurers, taking it early enough from the beginning of the plateau, it is also possible to reach the entrance of the spectacular Vallée Perdue … It is advisable to inquiry about the snow condition prior to your trip since this narrow canyon is sometimes difficult to ski all the way without taking off your skis once or twice. This beautiful, fun and varied itinerary will take you all the way down to Val d’Isère, at the bottom of La Daille’s gondola and funicular.

Departure from the top of the Tovière: 2695m. altitude.
Arrival at La Daille: 1818m. altitude.
Total vertical drop: 877m.
Initiation level.
