Skiing in La Plagne
The skiing on offer is wonderfully versatile here and boasts one of the largest linked areas in France and even the world. La Plagne forms part of the Paradiski area, famous for its 425km of runs.
La Plagne, along with Les Arcs and Peisey Vallandry, form a ski area that sees nearly 4.7 million skiers and snowboarders each year. With La Plagne alone making up 225km of these runs, it is no wonder that many holidaymakers choose La Plagne as a holiday destination.
La Plagne’s closest ski area lends itself to beginner and intermediate skiers, with unchallenging but enjoyable sweeping pistes and moving upwards skiers will find more variety including blacks and off-piste terrain.
Other claims La Plagne boast is Europe’s longest boarder cross, funnily named the ‘Fun Slope’ and the resort is one of the only places you can ride your own Bobsleigh – certainly a once in a lifetime experience.
The first thing you’ll notice about a Plagne is that the resort is scattered across 11 different areas or ‘villages’ meaning a great deal of accommodation options and proximities to lifts and amenities to consider.
The quaint farming villages of Champagny en Vanoise lay to the south of La Plagne, Plagne Montalbert on the west and Montchavin La Plagne sitting toward the north. These villages have the most character and tradition, with the new purpose-built resorts continuing upward into the mountain. Les Coches, with a modern feel to it but still with plenty of character due to the interesting architectural styles used to emulate the ‘ski chalet’ feel.
Then at 1800m the resort centers of Belle Plagne and Plagne Centre. Moving upward you’ll find Plagne Aime 2000, Plagne Soleil and Plagne Village, and Belle Plagne. Over another ridge sits Plagne Bellecôte and Belle Plagne. The later has a rather impressive leisure center which has been renovated this year (2018/19) with new spas, and family pool areas.
Although some of the more modern areas of the resort were constructed in the 60s and 70s during the boom of man-made ski resorts, you can’t deny the convenience this offers to skiers and snowboards with almost all accommodation in these higher resorts being ski in ski out. Albeit slightly fragmented, it means that each area of La Plagne offers something for everyone, with small hubs of restaurants and bars each creating their own atmosphere.
