The most steep slope: "The Wall"

Not yet impressed? All slopes are groomed at night but this particular section is not groomed. The entire descent is always full of extreme bumps. Not only at the end of the afternoon, but also in the morning at 09:00! For experienced skiers this is definitely a must do during their winter sports holiday in Les Portes du Soleil.

Grand Paradis: 7 km long descent

The Grand Paradis is a 7 kilometre long section, for the avid skiers among us, the perfect downhill run. The first part of the descent is wide, quiet and provides beautiful views. Do you manage to ski down in one piece?

Coup de Monde: Spectacular black

The adventure begins at the top of the piste, from where the view is amazing. This makes the start of this black slope really spectacular. The piste can be reached with the Haut Forts chairlift and the piste ends at the bottom of Les Prodains. If you ski down this steep black slope non-stop you will definitely deserve an alcoholic snack in the après ski...

Belette: all nature 

De Belette is a fine slope for skiers who like to ski in nature. The piste starts at Plaine Dranse in Châtel and is a 3.5 km long green piste through the trees. The piste runs all the way to Pré La Joux.
