One of the highest ski resorts in the Alps, La Plagne offers some of the most exciting and varied high-altitude skiing in Europe. Before skiing took over, former silver and lead mines were used as a base by the French resistance during WWII. 'Mont de la Guerre', located above Champany, is named in honour of those who fought in the war against the Nazis.
The resort of La Plagne is a collection of ten linked ski villages, with altitudes ranging from 1250 to 2100 metres, and offers 225kms of piste skiing. The Paradiski ski area of La Plagne and Les Arcs covers 425kms of piste skiing linked by the Vanoise Express, the world's largest cable car. The wide blues and reds are perfect for intermediates, while the black runs on the Aiguille Rouge will be testing for any advanced skier. Perfect skiing for every ability!
Beginners start out on the broad nursery slopes and soon graduate to a vast theatre of blue runs, which give second-week skiers the chance to spread their wings and discover the thrill of high-mileage skiing. Experts set their sights on the Bellecôte Glacier, with its superb long black pistes and untracked powder runs - a rare chance to ski descents of more than 2000 vertical metres. Lift passes available include a full Paradiski pass, a local La Plagne area pass, a family ski pass, free passes for anyone under 6 and Nordic/cross country ski passes.
