More extensive is this guide from the Peisey-Info site. It starts off with some useful routes on the Peisey side of the mountain, warning the reader about avalanche danger near the Derby lift and then showing the way to Notre-Dame-les-Vernettes. The guide finishes with some videos of key routes, including the off-piste run from Col de la Chal down to the Nancroix Valley:

Seated safely in your favourite armchair, the must-have coffee table book is Didier Givois' Les Clés du Paradiski, widely available in resort. It covers a big range of routes in both Les Arcs and La Plagne, with perhaps the most terrifying account being the descent from Mont Pourri:
"You must test the snow on the North Face before your first turn.
If there is ice, turn back, otherwise it will be the last turn you make"
