  • Ski area

    La Plagne and Les Arcs combine into the Paradiski with over 425kms of piste making it one of the largest ski area's in the world but La Plagne on it's own offers plenty of skiing for a short ski break. It offers extensive pistes and has terrain to suit every ability but a majority of runs are blue/red. Beginners are well catered for too with at least one free lift in each village. Snowboarders seem to be equally happy in La Plagne with lots of wide pistes, snowpark and three boardercross runs. 

    The resort

    La Plagne is one of the most famous high altitude ski areas in the world with 11 self-contained villages, each with their own identity and with direct access to the ski area. The aptly named Belle Plagne (2050m) is one of the most attractive high altitude resorts. Built in a traditional Savoyard style, car parking is all underground preserving the natural environment. Plagne Bellecote (1930m) is bigger and more functional but provides excellent access to the almost endless terrain. Plagne-Centre also offers good access to the ski area but wont win any prizes for aesthetics! More making the most of the whole Paradiski area Les Coches (1450m) sits lower but the Vanoise express is close at hand to offer easy access to Les Arcs.

  • Top Tips

    Our top tips for La Plagne

    • The first of our tips has to be for those needing an extra adrenaline rush! The Olympic bobsleigh run built for the 1992 Games offers you the chance to shoot down the 19 bends at high speed but booking in advance is a must.
    •  La Plagne has plenty of choice for eating and drinking, mostly offering the traditional Savoyard dishes. If staying in Belle Plagne try the Face Nord or Matafan or the Ferme in Bellecote.
    • If you want to explore the off-piste potential it's best to hire a guide. The off-piste doesn't tend to get tracked out as quickly as other resorts so you can enjoy the powder for longer!
    •  After a day skiing try the outdoor swimming pool in Plagne Bellecote. It's open from 3-8pm every afternoon (except Sundays). Don't worry, it's heated to 30 degrees!
    •  Enjoy a hot chocolate or spot of lunch at Les Douz dous Praz
