Welcome to
La Plagne

La Plagne is a collection of small, purpose-built ski resorts and traditional villages located on the edge of the Vanoise National Park. Renowned as a family-friendly resort, it has a good selection of beginner pistes but also some great choices for the more advanced skier or snowboarder. In addition, La Plagne is part of the famous Paradiski ski area, joined together to Les Arcs by the Vanoise Express cable car.

The purpose-built resorts are found at high altitudes (1800m to 2100m). They all have a good choice of apartments, chalets and hotels, all of them offering ski-in/ski-out access, as well as restaurants and nightlife. The more traditional villages of Monchavin, Montalbert and Les Coches lie at lower altitudes (1250m to 1450m) and, while they have their own pistes, they are also linked to the La Plagne ski area.

Getting around is easy thanks to free shuttle buses and a great network of ski lifts that connect all the resorts and villages. Some of these links are open at night to help visitors get from their accommodation to the different restaurants, shops and bars in the neighbouring resorts. This huge area of joined resorts and villages makes La Plagne a true playground for lovers of the outdoors both in summer and winter.

La Plagne is most famous for its top-class skiing and snowboarding but there are plenty of other things to do here throughout the year, from snowsports like snowshoeing and ice skating to summer activities such as mountain biking and cycling, while hikers will love the Vanoise National Park with its marked trails and gorgeous views.

Breathtaking mountain landscapes, picturesque Alpine pastures, murmuring streams and tranquil forests host wild animals like ibexes, chamois, marmots and lynxes. At the entrance of the park sits the Vallon de Champagny le Haut, a collection of traditional Alpine hamlets which are a perfect example of the local architectural heritage.
