  • How do you say La Plagne?


Resort Lowdown

Voted by European tourists as the favourite resort of the 17/18 season, La Plagne impresses visitors with its 11 villages set over a panoramic vista, high in the French Tarentaise Mountains.

The main town of the popular resort, Plagne Centre, sits at an altitude of 1970m making it one of the highest resort towns in the Alps. With snow lined streets and lots of choice of bars restaurants and, facilities, it is a fantastic location for winter holidays, whether they include high-octane adventures or piste-side chilling in one of the lively apres bars.

  • A tourist favourite with guaranteed snow all winter long and never ending terrain to explore

The SKI Area

La Plagne is one of the main resorts in the huge ski area ParadisSki, connected to Les Arcs by a breathtaking ride on the Vanoise Express; the biggest cable car in world.

The Paradiski has 425km of terrain over 264 pistes ranging from the sheltered, tree-lined pistes lower down the valley at 1207m, to exposed glaciers offering unrivaled panoramic views at 3250m.

Those seeking extra thrills can test their courage on the Olympic bobsleigh run where you can reach bone rattling speeds as you hurtle down the sheet ice…. It is as scary as it sounds.

When Does La Plagne Open?

The resort opens its lifts to the public on the 15th December 2018 and closes on the 27th April 2019

When To Go To La Plagne?

Due to the massive altitude difference great conditions can be found in the resort almost every single day of the winter season. Due to its popularity, February half term can be absolutely packed with lift queues of up to an hour on major lifts, the other 4 months of the season are much quieter, however, and skiers can often ride directly onto the lift with no waiting.

Must Do Runs at La Plagne

The Arpette blue run sounds easy but all levels ability will love the mellow nature and wide piste. Carve your own line and send it off the many rollers and side hits on the piste. In the Spring the afternoon slush moguls turn it into a funpark with jumps everywhere!

The leg burning 16km over 2026m descent from Aguille Rouge to Villaroger is one of the longest continuous run in the Alps and a must do from good intermediate to advanced riders. Can you do it without resting? Tag us in your videos if you can!

The Town

Plagne Centre village is the main hub for most amenities in the resort. The purpose built town has a great choice bars, restaurants and shops just footsteps from the pistes.

With so much choice of activities and places to visit in the town, there will still be things left undiscovered by the end of your week, leaving you wanting to return again and again.

Off Peak Week recommends checking out the heated outdoor swimming pool in Plagne Bellecote, it feels surreal to relax and do some lengths whilst people ski right past.

Other tourist favourits include Husky Sleding, paraponting skidoo riding and the death defyingSuper Tyro 600m long Zip line in Ame Plagne.

What happens in La Plagne

Many of the bars provide live music and great atmosphere almost every night of the week along with the local resort organising fireworks displays and shows.

There are also national ski and snowboard competitions that come to the area at regular intervals throughout the Winter
