Do you like challenges and want to push yourself to the maximum?

You will start by you going beyond the Cerisier corridor, giving you an experience that really puts you in the mood!

You will leave from the highest point of the resort at the Pic Blanc at 3,330m.
After seeing the resort at 360° and feeling that you have reached the top of the world, the first part of the journey sees you tackle the famous Sarenne. This is a piste known worldwide for being very demanding. Then the corridor of the Cerisier is yours!

A forgotten, extremely steep corridor that only accepts very good skiers!

Highlights of the 'First Corridor' programme

  • At 3,300m the panoramic view is simply breathtaking.
  • A route appreciated by good skiers. Sarenne is  demanding but the pleasure is amazing!
  • The refuge of the GUC (Grenoble University Club) is a monument that has marked the local sporting life. There are dozens of stories to tell!
  • Above all this first corridor will be one you remember!


"A demanding yet highly pleasurable excursion! We would strongly advise this group to be between 1 and 4 people to truly maximise on the time. Bring friends or family of the same level that are looking for adventure and something away from the normal off piste skiing experiences."
