Col de Côte Plaine is one of those technically easy ski tours with stunning panoramas and a beautiful final descent. We will start our hike slightly below the Col du Lautaret (2058m / 6,751ft). We first skin up a small valley, following the mountain stream of Roche Noire along its left bank. Then, we turn west at the end of this valley and continue upwards until we reach the Col de Côte Plaine (2639m / 8,658ft). From there, the view of the Écrins massif and especially la Meije is awe inspiring. The descent heads down a nice southwest facing slope, where we eventually reach the village of Villar d'Arène, the final point of a fantastic loop! Côte Plaine is a fantastic beginner to intermediate ski tour to do around la Grave! Vertical: +750m (+2,460ft) -1000m (-3,280ft)
