5 Reasons to Visit La Plagne



5 Reasons to Visit La Plagne

For 60 years, La Plagne has hosted skiers, snowboarders, and lovers of all things snow. Here are just five reasons to visit La Plagne from its luxurious  accommodation to the new snowpark suitable for all abilities.

1. Outstanding Skiing

An exceptional area for skiing with a variety of slopes for all levels and gorgeous panoramas to savour as you glide down the mountain. There are 425 km of slopes throughout Paradiski (La Plagne, Les Arcs, and Peisey-Vallandry) with 225 km in La Plagne alone. Belle Plagne’s ESF ski school offers private and group lessons for all ages and abilities. From this winter, the school is also providing skiing lessons in sign language.

2. Wonderful Accommodation

Choose the accommodation that suits your needs with 11 sites and as many different ambience options: seven mountain sites, three villages, and a village in the valley.

La Plagne has its own online travel agency enabling you to easily book accommodation, transport, transfers and activities.

3. Unique Experiences

If you are looking for something a bit different to skiing, discover two amazing experiences: the bobsleigh track and the ice tower.

Have a go at bobsleighing on a historic track, the only bobsleigh and skeleton track in France. In 1992, it was the home of the Olympic event for the Albertville Olympic Games.

Climbing the 22m high Mr Freeze-like ice tower activates all your senses: touch and hearing to feel how this translucent living element reacts; sight is essential to place your ice axes and crampons corrrectly (and also enjoy the view of the surrounding glaciers); taste and smell the pure, clean natural fragrance! Pretend you are wearing a Spider-Man costume and enjoy the wonderful sense of achievement as you climb higher in the safety of a secure rope and mountain guide.

4. New Snowpark

This year, enjoy the new “Riders Nation” snowpark, accessible for all levels — beginners and advanced snow fiends.

New name, new address! The historic snowpark of Belle Plagne has moved to the Dos Rond sector in Montchavin-Les-Coches.

Accessibility remains the key word and the “tuto” sign accompanies and advises beginners. And for those who prefer to watch the show, everything is designed for them to be able to enjoy it up close!

5. Rest and Relaxation

Come to the mountains for rejuvenating activities, far from the hustle and bustle of ordinary life

Ski sophrology offers a different ski session, where you take the time to breathe, relax, and cuddle the trees.

From 2023, visitors can go on Cani Raquettes, a snowshoeing tour that takes on a new dimension with an optional “toutou” classification. The alter ego of Cani Rando in the summer, lovers of four-legged friends or even those who aren’t fans of walking (children… even teenagers) will not notice the time passing. Steve’s sledge dogs are a great opportunity to explore the forests in a new way.

Rest in an outdoor spa facing the snowy mountains at Deep Nature Bains & Spa La Plagne. There are two sections: Spa Family (from 4 years old) and Spa Premium (from 16 years old).
