Part of the famous Paridiski area, with more than 220 km of piste, and 70% above the 2000m altitude, La Plagne is ideal for all levels of skier and snowboarder. There are plenty of blue tracks for beginners, but the red and black runs take up almost half of the slopes, and include snow parks, slide boarders, boarder crosses, half pipes, toboggan runs, and even waterslides. It is also conveniently linked by cable car to the neighbouring ski area, Les Arcs. Non-skiing activities include dog sledding, paragliding, snowshoeing, ice climbing and zip lining.
La Plagne has a reputation for being a family friendly resort, with kid’s clubs and crèches, kids ski school and plenty of activities and events for children to enjoy. The different villages within the resort reflect diverse styles and character. Plagne 1800 is situated on the edge of the forest, with traditional Savoyard chalets and a quieter, more peaceful atmosphere. Plagne Centre (1970) is more family oriented and has a fantastic après ski environment with plenty of shops and restaurants to keep visitors busy when off the slopes. Plagne Village (Soleil 2050) also has a welcoming, family friendly atmosphere, with typical wooden ski chalets. Plagne Aime 2000 boasts panoramic views and faces the majestic Mont Blanc. There is a shopping mall with shops, restaurants and services. Plagne Bellecot (1930) has more of a party atmosphere, with an outdoor swimming pool and an ice-rink. The snow park and half pipe are nearby, and it is the starting point for the glacier. Belle Pagne (2050) is a tranquil village that has been completely pedestrianised, a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the busier areas. It is the highest village and has good access to the full range of slopes and most accommodation is conveniently ski-in / ski-out.
Champagny-en-Vanoise (1250) is close to the spectacular Ice Tower, with spectacular views of the Vanoise National Park. Montchavin La Plagne (1250) carries the label “Family Plus” with plenty of activities for children and families, with shops and restaurants galore. There is also an aquatic complex, Paradisio. Plagne Montalbert (1350) is another charming village with many activities such as dog sledding and snowshoeing. Les Coches also has a traditional look about it, with lots of wood and slate roofs.
