The broader La Plagne ski area is a very large and efficient lift network which covers a vast acreage. La Plagne and Les Arcs combine to create Paradiski which is one of the largest lift networks in the world. The La Plagne area is really a collection of lots of individual resorts each of which has its own style (please see linked resorts). As the La Plagne region is large there is lots to explore for skiers of all abilities, from Glacier skiing above 3,000m down to tree lined pistes leading to great restaurants at 1250m La Plagne has it all. The La Plagne ski area links through to the Les Arcs region via the Vanoise Express, a very fast, double decker cable car which is an experience in itself. The pistes are well maintained and well managed throughout the season. As the area is so large there are improvements and changes to the lift system regularly, so it is always useful to ensure you have the most recent piste map.

The focus point of La Plagne ski resort is Plagne Centre which sits at 1970 metres above sea level, and as mentioned, is surrounded by smaller collections of hamlets and chalets. For example, Plagne Aime and Plagne Soleil are very easily reached from Plagne centre, and all the areas are linked by gentle ski runs and efficient ski lifts.

The “Beginner Zone” in Plagne centre is one of the best places for first time skiers to learn. Not only do all the ski schools meet here, but there is an abundance of gentle ski runs as well as multiple childrens ski areas such as the Buffalo Kids Park. For those who are slightly more confident, the Colorado chair lift is a great step up to some longer, although still very gentle, enjoyable blue pistes.

Intermediates are spoilt for choice across the resort. The combination of open, winding blue pistes that cover the ski resort, to the more challenging pistes found higher up the mountain, make for varied and enjoyable skiing. Intermediates can access excellent view points and venture to higher points of the ski area with ski runs such as the “Combe” red run which sits near Glacier de Bellecote (the highest point of the Paradiski area).

Experts can take this same approach and head to Glacier de Bellecote, but they also have the option of some excellent of piste skiing at this point. From here, one route could be to take the Derechoir black run which cuts down back the mountain and eventually meets the tree line. This route gives the option of returning to La Plagne or taking the Vanoise express over to other side of the Paradiski area. Be sure to leave yourself enough time to make the return journey to La Plagne.

In terms of travelling to La Plagne, if you are looking to use public transport to get to the ski resort of the La Plagne, the nearby town of Aime has a train station and a bus station.
