And we’re back on our virtual tour of the French Alps! Our next stop is La Plagne Ski Resort, which is a 1-hour and 15  minute drive from Tignes (our previous stop). It’s also fairly close to Les Arcs Ski Resort, also considered one of the best ski destinations in France.

 

 

#La Plagne Ski Resort Info

 

 

La Plagne ski resort lies at an altitude of 3,250 metres and the slopes go all the way down to 1,250 metres. It’s part of huge ski area called Paradiski that spreads across a total of 425 km (Les Arcs-Peisey Vallandry and La Plagne-Les Coches).


 

La Plagne itself has total of 225 km and 127 slopes: 

 

- 15 black

- 30 red

- 72 blue

- 10 green 

 

 

So, we can safely say that this resort is ideal for lower intermediate skiers and boarders and thus, perfect for a family ski holiday! 

 

Much of the ski area is located on a plateau where there are wide and easy slopes for you to gain some confidence ;)

 

For those of you in search of something a bit more challenging, head directly for the 2,700 metres Roche de Mio and the Bellecôte Glacier where you’ll find black runs and a large off- slope area that guarantees a good adrenaline kick! 

 

 

 

 

#Activities to do for non-skiers in La Plagne 

 

 

A family ski holiday isn’t a holiday if there isn’t something to suit everyone. Not all families want to go skiing every single day so, we’ve done some research to find out what it is you can do apart from skiing. 

 

 

How about having a ride on the Olympic bobsleigh track? 

 

 

Even before La Plagne was a ski resort, the locals used to race bobsleighs on the road. In 1992, the Albertville Olympic Games consecrated our love for bobsleigh and designated La Plagne as the host resort for the Olympic discipline.

 

It is open to holidaymakers at the end of the afternoon, after the sports training. So, if you want to give this a go, make sure you book your descent. This is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience! 

 

 

There also loads of sledging opportunities for when the lifts close. Have you ever heard of Airboard? It’s essentially an inflatable body board that you lie on and go all the way from Aime 2000 to La Roche (a total of 5km!). 

 

Other more typical activities in the area are ice skating and visiting “Deep Nature Spa” located in the centre of Belle Plagne.

 

For those of you who are into “Escape Rooms”, there’s one in la Plagne Bellecôte ;) 

 

 

#Après-ski in La Plagne

 


 

As La Plagne is primarily a family ski destination, it’s not known for its après-ski. However, we have found some good spots if you like having a drink after a long day of ski. 


 

Le Bonnet 

 

This place is great to have a drink before leaving the ski resort. It’s located at Plagne Bellecote and is open until 7 pm, great for an ice cold beer with views of the runs. They also serve burgers and hot dogs in case the little ones are hungry and can’t wait to get to the chalet. 


 

Le Saloon

 

If some of you want to stay up late, you should head to Le Saloon bar, an american-themed  pub/club in Belle Plagne. It’s actually the only “disco” in La Plage

 


 

#Ski Hotels, Chalets and Apartments in La Plagne

 


 

On Esquiades.com you'll find cheap ski deals in Plagne. But first, knowing where to book your stay in La Plagne is key as there are a total of 11 villages that make up the resort. 

 

If you book your ski holiday with Esquiades.com, the hotels and apartments we offer are all located in La Plagne and Belle Plagne - purpose-built ski villages to guarantee a stay directly by the slopes. 

 

The accommodations are mainly self-catered which makes things very budget-friendly and flexible as you will be able to go in and out of the Lodges and Chalets freely, depending on what your daily plan is.
