Varied ski area good slope side accommodation varied nightlife.
Great intermediate resort with loads of wide motorway runs.
Huge vertical descent around 2000 m.
Lots of purpose built convenient accommodation.La Plagne is made up of no less than 10 separate villages scattered across a giant and largely gentle plateau alongside a steep mountain.
Four are low-lying traditional farming villages and the rest are purpose-built ski resorts at different altitudes. Belle Plagne and Plagne Centre form the hub of the resort, while Champagny-en-Vanoise and Montchavin are more rural and rich cowshed kitsch.
Paradiski offers huge ski area,but consider whether it is worth the additional cost.
- Snowboarders (parks)
- Choice of resorts
- La Plagne is pretty extensive in itself,consider whether you really need to pay the extra cost of the Paradiski pass.
- In low visibility head for the tree lined runs round the villages.
- Parks are located at Belle Plagne, Montchavin and Champagny with a half pipe in Bellecote.
- For experts sign up with a guide there is some great off piste out there.
