La Plagne is a collection of 10 villages linked up to Les Arcs to form the enormous Paradiski area. This is a high altitude area with stunning scenery and a superb snow record.

 

Each village in La Plagne is pretty much self-contained with shops, restaurants and bars. There is also easy access to the slopes which offer something for everyone. There are pisted runs for all standards as well as open powder fields for you to seek out some fresh tracks. La Plagne also offers a park and a halfpipe for the more freestyle minded amongst you.

 

Overall, a vast area, plenty to keep you occupied on and off piste, with a great selection of accomodation and a different village to drink in each night!!

 

Apres Ski

 

Variety of shops, restaurants and bars and the ski bus runs between the villages allowing you to get out and explore. This is a very popular family friendly resort as there is loads to do once the snowboard is in the store room - spa, open air ice rink, husky ride and the ultimate thrill: the Olympic bobsleigh run 10 minutes bus ride from La Plagne. The track is open from mid December to the end of March, conditions permitting.
