There is some gentle off-piste terrain in the Montalbert valley between the blacks, including the more challenging Coqs couloirs. There is piste-side powder off Mont de la Guerre towards Champagny and between the pistes on La Grande Rochette and Roche de Mio; another great introductory off-piste descent, called La Salla, takes you down from the top of L’Arpette to Plan Bois.

More testing terrain is found off the back of many of the peaks towards Champagny but the major routes are accessed from the Bellecote glacier. Either explore the terrain between the pistes or stay skier’s right from the top of the Bellecote run and a five-minute walk opens up the vast tracts of Friolin. The north face itself is formed by a 6km ridge line and there are over 20 recognised routes down, ranging in difficulty from the classic Petite Face Nord to the most beautiful Gros Glacier which involves abseiling, walking and a system of fantastically narrow couloirs. Do not even think about attempting this face without a guide. Most of the routes join in the middle of the valley and lead down to the village of Nancroix, where a short free bus ride gives you access to the Les Arcs lift network and a return to La Plagne via the Vanoise Express.
