John--that's the one; it can be accessed from Les Deux Alpes; but there is also more direct access from the village of La Chaumine. Check out the Skiers Lodge there. http://www.skierslodge.com/
Keoki, if I had a week in March to do this trip I wouldn't even think twice. (You do know I am sure that the terrain is rated super steep and there is no grooming whatsoever. Its the real deal.) You'll pay for the lodging, meals and skiing in FF, and your dollar is exchanging really well this season. Also, don't know where you are flying from, but there are some very competitive fares into GVA and Lyon so long as you get your flying done before the end of March.
Back in December,I actually priced out a week's trip to the Skiers Lodge at La Chaumine(you can't do less at Skiers Lodge)in March--I calculated the lodging, meals and guide at about $100/day (total); the lift ticket at about $35/day and air at about $350. A trip to Vail, Aspen, Tahoe, whatever cannot not be done for that (from here--Philly; nevermind that you can't find such terrain here. Those calculations assumed a 7 to 1 exchange rate; not sure exactly what it is now. Do the math, its a no brainer, as they say! (I could not do it, THIS YEAR, because I my ski partner and I--and I do think you would only want to do this trip with a partner of similar expert ability--could not get together on a week.)
I'm going to try again next year.
Go for it man! Just be sure to come back with several lengthy posts about the terrain, snow, food and wine.
