Skiworld is a company which is run for skiers by skiers. Almost everyone in our London office has done at least one season skiing. As a result we like to think that we know a little bit more about the resort than what can be found from a quick browse of the internet.
But to start us off, let’s cover off the basics. As most people will know, La Plagne boasts a huge skiing area – Paradiski. It is an area that encompasses La Plagne and Les Arcs which amounts to over 400km of piste, 70% of this is above 2000m. This means that La Plagne has a really solid history of getting good, consistent snow.
It’s one of the most well-known resorts in France, however it is underrated – this coupled with the expansive ski area means that La Plagne is rarely overcrowded.
Right, now on to the business end of things…
1/ “La Plagne” of action…
Do it like a local 메이플 핸즈. Get an early breakfast in and catch the first lift of the day. This way you’ll get the fresh snow to carve – as purists will know there can be nothing more satisfying. La Plagne is well known for its fair weather and a bit of sunshine, along with perfect ski conditions, goes a long way.
All this morning skiing will make for thirsty work. La Bergerie is a great mountain bar and restaurant with a large veranda – ideal for a vin chaud (although I believe other drinks are available). It’s easy to while away the hours there 응용 프로그램 다운로드.
For the evening there are loads of restaurants to choose from, or if you’re looking for something more upbeat head over to Scotty’s, they typically have a live band on the go.
2/ What if there’s a white out?
Skiing over in Montchavin and Montalbert will often offer relief as the tree-lined runs of the lower slopes offer clearer visibility 다운로드. Incidentally, thanks to the trees, these two areas offer some of the best runs in La Plagne. The scenery is simply breath taking and an absolute must in sunny conditions.
Alternatively, you can always wait for the weather to clear in the age-old manner – a mountain restaurant. We’ll come to our top pick restaurants later but keep your eyes peeled as there are a few with open log fires which are always a great shout during white outs.
3/ La Plagne, great for beginners and families
There are four predominant ski schools in La Plagne; ESF, El Pro, New Generation and Oxygene 윈도우 64비트 다운로드. Each offers a wide range of expertise to suit various needs and offer group lessons, private tuition and off piste guiding.

4/ What are the best ski runs in La Plagne?
We asked our staff what their favourite runs were…
The best blue run in La Plagne starts from the L’Arpette ski lift, in Plagne Bellecote 바람에 날려. It runs through Belle Plagne and back to Plagne Bellecote. It has a gentle gradient throughout so is ideal for beginners and kids alike. This run is perfect in the morning as it is a sun trap at that time of day.
The red from the Becoin lift down to Plagne Centre. It’s wide and open, at the same time as being steep making it an exciting run and can challenge those looking to graduate from blue runs. For added incentive Scott’s Bar is at the bottom for a celebratory drink – if necessary 이력서 템플릿 다운로드.
It is widely considered that the best black run in La Plagne is also from the Becoin. The black however goes down to La Roche. It’s the longest run in La Plagne and can be testing. Due to it being on a west facing slope the quality of snow tends to remain.
Off Piste (with a guide)
The Northface of the Bellecote Glacier undoubtedly presents the greatest challenge 다운로드. Its 1900m total vertical, starting from 3400m, and the beginning isn’t for the faint hearted kicking off with a daunting 45 degree descent. The run finishes in Peisey Nancroix.
5/ Eating out in La Plagne
As previously teased earlier on in this piece, there are three restaurants with fires so let’s kick off with those.
Le Loup Blanc (Plagne 1800)
This restaurant is a dream or a nightmare for those who find it difficult to choose what they want to eat 실비 키우기 1.14! Le Loup has a bit of everything…. pizzas, fondues, raclettes and specialty meat, not forgetting their famed pancakes which are ideal with a hot chocolate. Perfect for warming the cockles. It is the first of the three restaurants which has a fire.
Le Grizzli (Plagne Village)
You know its good when it’s popular with locals and quite frankly it’s easy to see why. This place has the Alpine trifecta for the ideal mountain restaurant – tasty traditional dishes, friendly atmosphere and an open log fire. Ideal 수다맨들 다운로드.
Le Petit Chaperon Rouge (Plagne 1800)
Chaperon is a slightly more upmarket restaurant, definitely one for the foodies. This place prides itself in serving a great selection of local food and it’s widely considered that they serve the best steaks on the mountain. With an energetic ambiance and a log fire, this place is always a fan favourite for those who know of it.
L’Arlequin (Aime La Plagne)
This is one of the best restaurants in the resort. Completely unassuming, it’s just like a typical French auberge – no nonsense, quality food. The place feels like a family run establishment, owned by two welcoming locals; George and Monique. The food is traditional Savoyard cuisine and is a real crowd pleaser.
L’Avalanche (Plagne Centre)
Serving traditional Alpine food, you won’t be disappointed here. Located right on the slopes, you can practically ski in to your seat. You can expect some true French classics from here such as tartiflette and fondue.
