Glacier skiing, distinctive villages and a huge variety of exhilarating runs.
Part of the impressive 425km Paradiski area, La Plagne is a collection of small villages, each with its own distinct feel and character. The region is famed for its variety, from the long, tree-lined runs in Montchavin to the deep powder located on the Bellecote glacier. Between the two you’ll find plenty of wide red and blue runs, perfectly suited for progressive beginners and intermediate skiers to build their skill set. Or if you want to beat the crowds, then head over to Montalbert for some exhilarating long runs through the trees.
The heart of the resort is Plagne Centre. Accommodation is limited here but it’s where the majority of the shops, restaurants and bars are located. The Hotel Terra Nova provides good direct access to the slopes, as well as great views over the valley. Below you have Plagne 1800, a small hamlet dominated by traditional chalets and the oldest part of the resort. Above Plagne Centre there are three more resorts, Plagne Soleil, Plagne Villages and Plagne Aime 2000, featuring a variety of self-catering accommodation options.
Take a quick bus journey up the road to Bellecôte, then hop on the Roche De Mio gondola and you’ll find yourself in Belle Plagne. This is the newest part of the resort with a mix of accommodation in a pretty and car-free setting. There is also a ski school meet point in Belle Plagne for those staying here. Finally, for a more traditional and quieter stay, there is Les Coches. It’s located on the other side of the mountain, next to the Vanoise Express, which connects La Plagne to Les Arcs. Please note the reps are based in La Plagne so ther is no dedicted rep for Les Coches.
