During the winter, if the kids are only skiing for half a day, then there are plenty of other activities available in La Plagne to keep them happy.
On the snow
There are dedicated sledging zones at Plagne Centre, Plagne Villages and Soleil, Montchavin, Champagny, Belle Plagne, Montalbert, Plagne Bellecôte and Plagne 1800. A kind of communal sledge known as Snake Glisse is available at Montchavin, Montalbert and Plagne Centre. For those above 140cm, there is a dedicated luge track called Colorado Ride above Plagne Centre - sledge and helmet are provided. Other activities you may like to consider for your children include snowman building, snowball fun, and if you want a real treat, try husky dog sledding where the little ones from the age of five can ride in a passenger sledge with you - there is usually only one passenger sled per outing, so book early to avoid disappointment.
There is an outdoor ice rink at Plagne Bellecôte and a covered one in Les Coches. You can rent skates and it's suitable for adults and children. Sticking with the ice theme, you can take an overnight stay in an authentic igloo, just up from Plagne Villages. Dinner and breakfast are included. And at the top of Plagne Bellecôte by the glacier, there is an ice grotto filled with ice sculptures (bear in mind this is at an altitude of 3,400m, so not suitable for babies).
There are indoor swimming pools in Plagne Bellecôte (you will also find an outdoor pool here!) and Montchavin, both offer swimming lessons for children and aqua-fitness classes. There is an indoor bowling alley in Belle Plagne which also has an amusement arcade, and cinemas in Bellecôte, La Plagne Centre and Champagny.
For adults that aren't quite so sure of the skiing, there are a number of spas you can try for some indulgence, as well as fitness classes, or perhaps some snow shoeing or winter walking trails. Pedestrian ski passes are available at a reduced rate so you can join the rest of your group up in the high mountains for lunch and spectacular views.
During the school holidays there will be plenty of child friendly events to explore. At Christmas, you can enjoy festive markets, parades, shows and Santa. Plenty more child friendly events are added to our events calendar throughout the ski season, so please do check it when you arrive.
