Take your pick of the piste as the magnificent combination of resorts La Plagne and Les Arcs enable you to choose from over 400kms of skiable terrain commonly known as Paradiski. La Plagne is a vast ski region in its own right and due to an extensive network of cable cars and lifts, you’ll soon be whisked up to almost 2000 metres before you dare to make the descent back to base. With access all areas ski passes or total lift coverage of La Plagne there’s every opportunity for you never to ski the same stretch twice. However, when you find your favourite, and you WILL find your favourite, the prospect of returning time and time again is an absolute joy to behold.
The Skiing and Boarding
La Plagne offers up a banquet of 225kms of piste including numerous long and winding trails which lead back to the beginners’ slopes which can be found in each of the main villages. If you’re just starting out then you can count on some superb ski schools and gentle nursery slopes to ease any initial fears as you grow in confidence from silly to Jean-Claude Killy. In total there are approximately 80kms of easy runs and just over 30kms for the intermediates. Advanced members of your crew will find themselves well-catered for too and some of the blacks speeding away from the Glacier de Bellecôte are white-knuckle if you’re planning on breaking the sound barrier. With top-class snow parks and boarder-cross trails in and around Bellecôte, Montchavin and Champagny en Vanoise it’s easy to see why La Plagne is perfect for mix-mode and ability groups so all you need to do is get strapped in and come on down.
Apres-ski is what La Plagne does best and you’ll have the pick of swimming, ice-skating, bowling, sledging, disco dancing and even a chocolate fondue evening – mmmmm, melty chocolate.
