Orelle, the fabled Fourth Valley is something of a secret. It’s a quiet, sheltered bowl that sits in the Maurienne Valley, not the Tarentaise where the rest of Les 3 Valleys ski runs are located.
“One of my favourite blue is Peyron in the Orelle bowl” , says Ashley. “This curvy wide, perfectly groomed slope is long and easy with breathtaking views into the Maurienne Valley towards Italy. The bowl is sunny and sheltered, and the Peyron is a lovely, cruisy blue run – both long and forgiving.”
