When it comes to Plagne Centre, the clue is in the name – if you want to be at the centre of the La Plagne universe, Plagne Centre is where it’s at.
A hub of activity and the biggest by far of the La Plagne villages, Plagne Centre has everything you need for a great holiday. Packed full of amenities all accessible through indoor tunnels including grocery shops, bakery and delis, tabac, souvenir, clothing and equipment stores, ski hire, service and ski schools, internet café and more places to eat and drink than you can get through in a week, you would be forgiven for never venturing further than Plagne Centre, but if the urge takes you to get out and about to other villages it couldn’t be easier.
Plagne Centre hosts a convergence of runs and lifts rivalled only by Bellecote. The new and improved Becoin lift is fast opening up the Mont Albert side of the resort and has at its peak the Cretes drag which affords access to some epic black runs and one of La Plagne’s best powder bowls. The Grande Rochete pedestrian-friendly bubble offers amazing views, reds, blacks and easy blue access to the south side of the mountain.
Bellecote is quickly accessible several ways and from there you’ve got lifts to the glacier, Montchavin and the Vanoise express to Les Arc. For beginners Plagne Centre can't be beaten, it is the meeting point for most ski schools, has a beginner area with drag lift, snow garden and the longest green run in resort serviced by its own slow speed beginner chair lift. Once you’re off the greens hit the Colorado chair for some cruisey blues and La Plagne's unique Purple Piste. Home of the Milka cow who, when chased will distribute chocolate to all who want it regardless of age or ski ability!
Plagne Centre has it all going on for all ages and all kinds of holidays but in between the activities, shopping, eating and drinking please, do try and remember you are living slopeside and it’d be a crime not to be up for first lifts in the morning!
