What to Know Before You Go on Your La Plagne Ski Holiday

The La Plagne area is easily accessed from any of four nearby airports: Chambery, Geneva, Grenoble, and Lyon. Airport transfer times by car run just over two hours at most. Once there, you'll find an impressive 225km of slopes, offering any kind of ski holiday in La Plagne you might hope to plan.

  • 1. Getting There by Rail

    The nearest rail stations are Aime (best for the central La Plagne resorts and Montalbert), Landry (best for Montchavin and Les Coches), and Moutiers (best for Champagny en Vanoise). For French travellers coming from Paris, trains depart from the Gare de Lyon. To travel by rail from the UK, take the Eurostar line from London St Pancras.

  • 2. La Plagne Ski Schools

    You don't have to be an experienced skier to enjoy all that the La Plagne area has to offer. There is an École du Ski Français school associated with each of the resort areas.

  • 3. Dining Options

    Most of the villages in the area can be accessed and negotiated totally on skis. In Plagne Centre, visit Le Refuge, Chaudron, or Baryllon. For dining in rustic charm, try The Forperet located above Montalbert. At the end of the Les Crozats red piste, you'll find the Friolin.

Best Ski Runs in La Plagne

For less experienced skiers, La Plague offers instruction and easy slopes for practice. For the more advanced, more challenging slopes are available. For a spectacular starlit experience, take advantage of night time skiing.

  • 1. Beginner Experiences

    Each of the high-altitude resort centres around La Plagne has its own nursery slopes to provide learning experiences for new skiers. The quieter slopes leading down to Montalbert are an excellent option for beginners.

  • 2. Intermediate Level

    The slopes off the back of Les Verdons are great for mid-level skiers, particularly the spectacularly long Mont de la Guerre. From the top of Roche de Mio, one fairly gentle option is the blue of Les Inversens, a lovely run which winds down through a tunnel back into Belle Plagne.

  • 3. Roche de Mio

    This is the starting point of the black Mio piste which takes visitors over to the Champagny side of La Plagne. The first section of this is short but genuinely steep, and can be icy in certain conditions.

  • 4. Bellecote

    The Bellecote glacier is the place to begin long, steep runs. For advanced skiers, a run down the entire mountain to Montchavin provides a challenge of a continuous run of over 2000m.
