La Plagne - France

The best backcountry from the Alps, North America and beyond!

The main reason people head to La Plagne for off-piste is to tackle the huge Face Nord. This descent from the top of the Bellecôte offers a great technical challenge combining couloirs and a steep gradient to really keep you on your toes all the way down. If you want something a bit more mellow then the Petite Face is worth a try.

For the showmen reading, head to the Grande Rochette lift and tackle the narrow couloirs that run below. It twists below the chairlift below so any falls or stumbles will be in the lift in full view of everyone aboard it. Better bring your A game.
