Downhill slope Camile RicouBack
Departure : Orcières
Distance : 2 km
Elevation : -589 m
The FIS-approved Camile Ricou downhill slope was created in 2014. It allows Orcières to host ski clubs, training and high-level competitions in downhill and Super G.
The Camille Ricou slope requires a high technical level. The champions of Orcières, Valentin Giraud-Moine (French Alpine Skiing team), Alizée Baron (French Skicross team) or even Cyril Vieux (coach of the French team – European Cup group) are unanimous on the quality of the slope : 'it's fast and engaged with lots of ground movement, it's perfect for an international competition', according to Valentin Giraud-Moine.
Sam Alphand, the Serre-Chevalier skier: “It’s a really superb run with some nice jumps at the top; a very complete track with gliding areas, large bends”.
Johan Clarey, the skier from Tignes who won a medal at the last Beijing Olympics, confided: “Training is rarely done on such a beautiful slope. Its specificity is that it is full of ground movements and there is not a portion that is alike. Good length of track, and what is super pleasant and that you rarely find is that it is completely sunny, it's a pleasure ! '.
Apart from training or competitions, the Camile Ricou slope is accessible to the general public who can ski down it in the footsteps of the greatest skiers !
