Hilly, exciting terrain. Impressive mountain peaks and an immense ski area that has everything. La Plagne is one of France’ prides when it comes to skiing. La Plagne is actually not a ski resort but an area consisting of 10 small villages that together make up this massive region. La Plagne does not have a reputation of having the most beautiful landscape or the most exciting entertainment. Rather the opposite, the ski area is really nothing for those who generally like quaint and cozy alp villages in Tyrol or those who are looking for really great after ski.

Instead, if you are looking for awesome skiing with hundreds of kilometers of top-class pistes, then you have found skiers' paradise. The large ski areas La Plagne, Les Arcs and Vallandry are actually referred to as the Paradise Ski Area. You can ski from an altitude of 3,250 meters and choose between different difficulty levels. If you are looking for a real challenge, try the spectacularly steep and unprepared pistes at Rochu and Bellecote. This is a must for any daredevil.
La Plagne includes the ski resorts Champagny En Vanoise, Montchavin Les Coches

La Plagne belong to Paradiski.
