Easy Black Run - L2A

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Heading to L2A next week, kids are on at me to take them on their first black run. So, do you have a recommendation for one, or ones we should avoid? Something groomed and wide would be good. Thanks.

@4D6174, ...not Valentin then...steep, icy, pylons in the middle, gully to the left. Boiler-plate from top to bottom on occasion...


...perhaps La Fee?

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Diable. Short, straightforward, ticks the 'I've done a black run' box.

Just to get clear (I pulled out the piste map still sitting on the table next to me, as I had a sneaking suspicion) - turns out I meant just the top section under the super diable lift. The full diable run to the bottom of the hill is quite long - and you're committed to seeing it through.

It doesn't answer your question, but basically I think you should be teaching them that 'black run' doesn't really mean anything.

A blue run is nothing until you've skied it top-to-bottom without error
A red run is nothing until you've skied it top-to-bottom without error
A black run is nothing until you've skied it top-to-bottom without error

Lots of people get off on challenging themselves to a black. A black doesn't have to be difficult, in its own right. What's difficult is skiing that black the way it's meant to be skied. Simply making it down alive doesn't prove anything.

@dp, Yep, agree with all that. They can do all of the above. Just want, if possible, for the first one to be at the easier end of the scale.

I skied Diable as my token black for the week in L2A a couple of years ago. It did not leave me traumatized (unlike a some natural red runs in Les Arcs / La Plagne this year Shocked ), actually I think it might have been quite pleasant Toofy Grin .

@4D6174, you might find clips of certain runs on youtube. That can sometimes be helpful.
