La Tania Comp Stade now next to Bouc Blanc Chair, the main piste re-routed across and down the old stade plus pics of the new beginners area.

We’ve got some clarification on the location of the La Tania Stade competition piste thanks to The Freeride Republic and Snowbound Transfers – cheers for the pics guys!

The Stade is now relocated to the right of the Bouc Blanc piste (looking up) next to chairlift with the main Bouc Blanc piste now to the left. So skiing down from the top La Tania gondola station you will loop around to skiers right (as the green Plan Fontaine piste does) and join the top of the old stade piste and then head down toward the Bouc Blanc chair.

The 2021 Piste Map actually has this marked on it with the red piste below the La Tania gondola station crossing under the gondola and then back again – we missed that change!

The new piste signs are now in place routing skiers across to the top of the old stade instead of the straight down hoon to the Bouc Blanc chair.

The new tunnel construction just above the La Tania gondola station is now complete to allow recreational skiers access under the L’Eclipse World Cup race piste from Les Arolles piste or the ForĂȘt chair.

The new tunnel – looks like it could support a 6 lane motorway!

The new World Cup piste and tunnel has meant the small beginners area and magic carpet lift has had to be relocated and is now situated immediately to your right as you exit the gondola station.

The new Ski Tranquille Beginners Area has a small travelator type lift and this fenced off sector is on a plateau situated just above the Bouc Blanc restaurant.

The new signage for this beginners area has just gone up

Still plenty of heavy equipment around on the ski area as they clear up and complete scheduled work before the snow arrives in earnest (this truck has it’s snow chains on ready!).

Snow chains fitted!
