La Plagne is located in the Paradiski ski area. It sits at 2100 m and has fast access to Roche de Mio and the Plagne glacier, basically, you can get anywhere fast if you’re staying in Belle Plagne.
It’s one of the prettiest of the villages in Paradiski as well, with fairy lights galore and nice-looking shopfronts, it’s perfect to get you in the Christmas spirit, no matter what time of year!
There are several great restaurants, most of them serving traditional Savoyard food, so you can get your cheese fix and then some! Cheyenne and Tete Inn are great little bars to round off a great day on the slopes, and le Saloon will keep you dancing until the early hours if you decide the next day’s forecast isn’t inspiring you.
La Plagne offers two unique overnight activities, the first is spending the night in a luxury snow groomer at the top of the mountain, where a driver drops you off in the evening and then comes back to collect you in the morning before the lifts open. The second is spending the night in an igloo at the Igloo village. Here you can enjoy mulled wine and fondue before heading off to your ice bed and sleeping bag.
Of course, there are the other usual activities you find in a ski resort, such as ice skating, snowshoeing and health spas.
With an admirable altitude of 2050 m, a main season that typically lasts from mid-December to the end of April, a huge variety of pistes and easy access via an efficient lift network, La Plagne can satisfy any skier.
The slopes surrounding La Plagne are brilliant for beginner and intermediate skiers, with an array of wide, roomy pistes and cruising blue runs like Le Tunnel, which meanders down from Roche de Mio back to the resort.
The La Plagne ski area features 40 km of ski-touring trails and 186 km of cross-country runs.
