La Plagne

Ski Area

Once voted the world’s most popular resort, La Plagne is certainly one of the world’s biggest and best. It has 10 different base villages ranging from traditional valley villages to state-of-the-art purpose built ‘ski stations.’ That’s before you consider it’s part of the giant Paradiski region, connected by a spectacular double-decker cable car to neighbouring Les Arcs, creating one of the world’s three biggest ski regions in the process with 425km of piste between them.

This massive area covers every type of terrain imaginable and is also one of the planet’s most snowsure, thanks to high altitude, glacier-capped slopes at the top of its huge lift-served vertical, again one of the world's biggest.

For advanced skiers and boarders, the freeride terrain down from the Bellecôte is a must-ride and everyone should have at least one go on the Olympic Bobsleigh Run, where various options include a taxi-bob ride behind a professional driver in a proper bob or going down with three friends in a self-steering bob raft.
