Overview of La Plagne

It’s almost as if the La Plagne plateau was created for skiing. Positioned in the centre of a huge bowl, the resort and ski area are contained to the east, south and west by towering mountains which help to preserve the snow and act as a perfect suntrap.

What more could a skier ask for? Glancing at a La Plagne ski map, one may notice the liberal use of blue lines – skiing La Plagne is a dream for the cruisy blue devotee or a family or beginner ski holiday as the gentle slopes are perfect for gaining confidence or bombing around with the kids. However, any advanced skier should be aware that the resort also boasts some seriously undervalued off-piste terrain. Plus, making up half of the Paradiski area, one of the world’s largest ski areas, means the resort can offer enough kilometres to keep even the most piste-hungry skier satisfied.

La Plagne accommodation is spread across a total of 10 villages, with traditional mountain hamlets lower down and purpose-built ski stations higher up to a respectable altitude of 2100m. In La Plagne we offer ski apartments and hotels, as well as catered and independent chalets. The original Plagne Centre is one of France’s first-ever built-for-skiing villages and what the buildings lack in charm they more than makeup for the inconvenience. La Plagne chalets and resort buildings are interconnected by tunnels and walkways – extremely practical in the cold and snow. A free bus service or late night pedestrian chairlifts ferry visitors between the resorts and although nightlife is on the quieter side in keeping with the family atmosphere, those looking for a party will find sufficient choices. There won’t be time to be blue on a La Plagne ski holiday!

  2. Plenty of Choice of Accommodation – With 10 different villages to choose from, and a range of chalets, apartments and hotels to suit all budgets, La Plagne has something for everyone.
  3. Family Friendly Feel – La Plagne’s easy-going air, accessible villages and great swathes of cruisy intermediate skiing make it a great choice for a family ski trip.
