Default Grande Terche & PdS Lift Pass

Hi,

I'm thinking about spending a day at La Grande Terche at the weekend.
It appears that the Chevrerie sector isn't covered on the PdS pass.
Does
anybody know how much I'm going to have to cough up for the extension,
and is it worth it?

Cheers.
Iain.

Not sure about the former, and whether it's worth it depends on what
you're looking for. What you'll find is a small resort with only a few
pistes, as you'll be able to see from the lift map. But there is a
reasonable off-piste potential, albeit not the most challenging in the
world, and only a very small proportion of skiers using it.

So if the snow's good and you want to ski some nice powder then yes,
it'll be worth it.

You might also consider going the other way, depending on where you're
staying of course, to Pras de Lys, between les Gets and Tanninges.
Somewhat larger then la GT, with a decent number of pistes as well as
more off-piste stuff. Of the two, that's where I'd more likely go,
although I don't know if you'll even get a reduction for having a PdS
lift pass.

I'm staying in la Chapelle d'Abondance and looking forward to a
nobby-no-mates (and no family) weekend of crossing-off the two
main bits of PdS I haven't got to yet, Grande Terche and the far side
of Les Gets. From a snow point of view it's looking promising. I
guess
what I'm hoping for in GT is empty pistes with lots of accessible
powder around the periphery. Empty pistes may be a bit optimistic
mid Feb. though I guess.

Also, I've boarded Chatel/Linga to Les Gets and back without a
problem,
and also La Chapelle (via Morgins and Avoriaz) to Linga without a
problem. I'm tempted to go for La Chapelle to the far side of Les
Gets
(i.e. the full crescent) and back to Linga, but I suspect that the
return
journey will be overly 'exciting' and probably doomed.

Cheers.
Iain.
