La Plagne is made up of six high-altitude resorts and four further down the mountain. A few of the villages are very attractive, most notably Belle Plagne. La Plagne’s six altitude resorts containing the bulk of the accommodation, are all around 2,000m. There’s plenty of ski-in/ski-out accommodation and none are further than 100m from the slopes.
La Plagne highlights: Plenty of wide, gentle slopes, ski-in/ski-out accommodation, reliable snowfall due to altitude, easy-to-reach powder-packed off-piste, huge choice of restaurants
Ski area is best for: Intermediates, families, freeriders
La Plagne’s 225km of local slopes join with Les Arcs to make the giant 425km Paradiski area. 80 percent of La Plagne’s ski runs are above 2,000m and reach up to the Glacier de Belle Côte (3,250m). The 130 local ski runs are split into 18 black, 33 red, 69 blue and 10 green. If that is not enough there is the Vanoise Express, which links up with Les Arcs in just under four minutes, offering access to another 235km of runs.
