Champagny-en-Vanoise (1250m) is a lovely mountain village; it is the point of entry to the Vanoise National Park and has everything you need in order to spend some quality time with your friends or family. This typical savoyard village is part of La Plagne and Paradiski.
La Plagne ski area has something for everyone! For beginners, dedicated zones are available and some free lifts as well. Once you are a bit more confident in hitting the higher slopes, a large range of blue runs are on offer especially on the sector of Plagne Bellecote and Village. Intermediates and experts also have a wide choice between red and black runs. The Galcier de La Chiaupe (or Glacier de Bellecote) offers awesome black runs as well as some of the best off-piste you can find. Another good sector is Le Bioley above Aime La Plagne. Regarding the off-piste, there is some easy spots for beginners, and some good itineraries among the trees. You should always make sure you are equipped for skiing in off piste and it’s always safer to have a guide with you, some sectors are quite dangerous even if you are an experienced skier or boarder.
For freestylers, there are two snow parks both located above Belle Plagne, a small one is more suited to beginners and the other one is a huge park with around 20 features, a big air bag and a half-pipe.The “Vanoise Express” lift which is the link to Les Arcs that allows you to enjoy the 450km of piste, is located in the sector of Montchavin and Les Coches.

To relax after an intense day on the slopes, the cinema, the bowling alley, the pool or the spa will be the best places to relax. For a complete change of scenery go to the “village igloo” and visit the ice cave before spending the night on an ice bed wrapped up in a warm sleeping bag.
