The top of the Bécoin there will be sand, deckchairs, beach huts, performers & a DJ!

La Plagne offer a first tracks experience on most Wednesdays of the season for a small cost of 12€ as long as you have a valid ski pass.
The lucky man that I am I got to experience what ‘first tracks’ entails.
Our morning starts with meeting at the funiplagne lift in Plagne Centre before 8am which takes us up to the Grande Rochette 2505m where a a gentleman from the piste patrol highlights all the key features of the surrounding area. We then follow one of the piste patrol down perfectly bashed pistes back to the lift for one more go up before the lifts open for the rest of resort. At the top for the second time we are ushered into the restaurant and provided which coffee or hot chocolate and a selection of breakfast nibbles. Once finished we are free to go in any direction we like with the pistes still completely empty apart from our group. I then Managed to get at least free more nice long runs before seeing another person, all on perfect pistes.
The whole experience was incredible, the views, the piste conditions, the lack of people, it really was a great start to the day.

After transfer day yesterday and busy day tomorrow I decided to get on the lifts early this morning, here is how it went…
I started the morning attempting to reach the Glacier. From top of l’Arpette 2385m the real enjoyment began firstly from the views with not a cloud in the sky, secondly having the Arpette piste, heading down to Belle Plagne, all to myself and beautifully groomed.
After starting the day aiming for the Glacier I fell short at the top of Roche De Mio 2700m. The Glacier was closed because of avalanche blasting on the glacier due to fresh snow up top, exciting for tomorrow!
The new plan after my first run down from my new highest point was to lap the bubble to the top of the Roche De Mio after having such a great time coming down the Sources Piste which again was near empty and a light dusting from the night before meant conditions were perfect for some high speed piste bashing.
After a few laps the decision was made to stray off the piste. Spotting a line from the bubble on the way up and a short hike later there I was over the moon in some powder on top a firm supportive base which made for some very easy off piste riding.
Not to mislead the snow down low needs a top up which is forecast for the end of the week. Returning home at lunch time, care was made to avoid icy patches coming back down into Les Coches, still a very happy man.
