La Plagne is an 11 village resort and offers over 400km of slopes culminating at an altitude of 3250m as part of the Paradiski area. This family-friendly resort features a wide range of slopes for beginners and intermediates, while experts will enjoy the more demanding runs and off-piste possibilities beyond the Bellecôte glacier.
La Plagne is an exceptional all-ability ski area, with 225km of slopes to discover. There are over 80 wide green and blue runs, ensuring that beginner and intermediate skiers are never stuck in one place and can roam around the resort. More advanced skiers won’t be disappointed with the off-piste possibilities, often considered the most challenging terrain in the Alps. The Belle Plagne snowpark has two separate areas, one for beginners and another with tables, rails, an airbag and a boadercross section for more seasoned freestylers. La Plagne is linked to Les Arcs by cable car, so skiers and snowboarders can further explore the Paradiski area.
La Plagne also offers a number of fun and interesting non-ski activities, many of which you won’t find in other leading resorts. Where else can you experience an Olympic bobsleigh run, put your puzzle-solving skills to the test in an escape game or camp overnight in an igloo? Add to this the more traditional activities found in a ski resort, such as paragliding and outdoor iceskating, and you have more to keep you busy than you could possibly do in a week. If you’re looking to be pampered, try the Deep Nature spa in Belle Plagne with its saunas, steam room, Nordic baths and whirlpools, counter-current lane and salt grotto.
Bars & Restaurants
Whatever your budget or preferences, you will always be able to find something delicious to eat in La Plagne after a long morning on the slopes. Traditional Savoyard restaurants are dotted all around the resort while La Plagne Centre and Plagne Bellecôte are where you will find a great variety of quick bites and burger bars. Gourmet restaurants are mostly found in the calmer areas, such as L’Union and Le 360, both located in the Montalbert area.
There are friendly pubs, live music venues and cocktail bars in the many villages that make up La Plagne. The après-ski scene is mainly found in Belle Plagne, with Le Saloon (an American-themed pub that turns into a nightclub after dark). Or why not try night sledging as an après-ski alternative?
