A fast, flowing trail from the top of the Borsat lift to the bottom. The top half is heavily trafficked but fun, with some nice bypassable jumps and good berms to rail. Pause halfway down on the plateau where you can turn to the left to head down Tarentaise Airline and a few other trails into Tignes le Lac, or carry on down Blue Lagon into a fast flowy section with a fun wooden drop-off and several small tabletop jumps. All jumps are by-passable and rideable if you don't like air. The lower half doesn't get much traffic so is often in very good condition later in the season.

Access Info

Borsat lift that sits in the valley between Tignes and Val d'Isère.
