Left; Glacier De Thorens with Moraine and Col lifts in Val Thorens

Right; Glacier De Bouchet, down to Orelle area

Middle; Funitel Grand Fond from Val Thorens area and Rosaël lift from Orelle

The mountains are big, so you can hardly see the lifts, but I guess you can see the Glaciers?

busy hours Saturday outside Malaysia (less people in the slopes)




There are some huge mountains in this area, like Mount Du Vallon with the top at 2952m.  The pistes are like huge roads down the mountain.  You can also ski off-piste more or less anywhere as long as you know how to get to the starting point.



This was the place for me though.  The back side of Sommet Des 3 vallèes at 3230m, down to the Glacier du Bouchet was really really good.  Also the front side going down the left side of the top part of the mountain was good as well.


Here we are on the long way back to Orelle (not down in the valley) on the lower part of the glacier.
