The Ski Area

"La Plagne Is Such A Fun Resort To Snowboard In, Endless Terrain, Cool Snow Park And We Got Some Really Good Pow As Well" Halldor Helgason, March 2018

So what’s the ski area like?

La Plagne is a French Ski area nestled in the alpine Tarentaise valley.  La Plagne lies between 1250m in the village of Montchavin up to the heights of 3250m on the Glacier.  With 70% of the pistes above 2000m it guarantees optimal snow conditions.  Since 2003, when the fastest cable car of its kind in the world was built; the Vanoise Express, it has been linked to its neighbouring resort Les Arc to form the Paradiski area.  Together they boast 425km of runs serviced by 130 lifts!  This provides a great ski area for intermediate groups and families.  Although, don’t let this fool you there is still more challenging runs to be had along with a great selection of off-piste (accessed best safely with an experienced guide).

The resort has a great freestyle offering with two terrain parks, one smaller than the other offering 20 rails and tables as well as an air bag and three Boardercross courses;  Les Coches and Champagny and Europe’s longest Boardercross route the Funslope in Bellecote. With all this fantastic riding to be had, what are you waiting for – Book Now!
