Ski La Plagne
Not as well-known as some of the more famous ski resorts La Plagne is without doubt a jewel in the crown of ski destinations and one that year on year is growing in popularity.
Sited on the Rhone Alps with views of the mighty Mont Blanc, La Plagne is one of a collection of older towns and villages at various altitudes, which have transformed themselves over 50 years into The Paradiski Ski Resort. These are all connected by a free bus service and free access lifts.
At an altitude starting at 2,000 metres La Plagne offers excellent skiing with a regular fall of new snow making this a more attractive proposition as it almost guarantees skiing throughout the season.
Accommodation is varied and externally a bit dated as they stem from the 1960’s, but room sizes are much larger than most other ski destinations offer, are very comfortable and all at a very affordable level. The main attraction of the accommodation in La Plagne and the other towns and villages which are part of the Paradaski Ski Resort is they are sited on the mountain making this a ski in and ski out resort. From the moment you leave in the morning until you return in the evening your movement around the resort can all be done on skis.
With over 425kms of pistes the slopes offer something, and more for everyone.
As well as skiing, La Plagne offers visitors the chance to experience most of the other snow sports including luge, snowboarding, tobogganing, night skiing or experience a taxi-ski down the slopes reaching speeds of up to 55mph.
La Plagne is most famous for hosting the 1992 Olympic Bobsleighing Championships with the Jamaican bobsleigh team and the views from the Chalet de la Grande Rochette are considered to be one of the top 1,000 places to see before you die.
