Welcome to La Plagne Ski Resort

With its instantly recognisable red bobble hat and sunglasses logo, La Plagne is a long-time favourite for British skiers and riders thanks to its variety of friendly runs. A purpose-built resort situated at 1,800m, it gives access to 425km of the Paradiski area. Families and beginners will love the steady groomers around its five villages while there’s plenty of terrain to explore for the ambitious, from tree-lined runs to open bowls. For the committed, it’s possible to take the double-decker cable car all the way to Les Arcs – just make sure you don’t get stuck there as it’s a long drive back.

Best time to ski in La Plagne

La Plagne’s season runs from mid December to mid April. Thanks to its size and relatively high altitude – the highest lift goes up to 3,200m – La Plagne is a pretty good bet all season. But for the best snow, January and February are great months but March and April offer more opportunities for sitting on the terraces, having lunch outside and enjoying the springtime sun. For festive fun with the family or partner, you can’t beat going at Christmas.

Things to do in La Plagne

La Plagne is home to France’s only bobsleigh and skeleton track and it’s open for members of the public who want to experience the thrill of an 80km/h descent and the G-forces of an F1 driver. It’s not for the faint hearted but it is totally set up for first time have-a-go-heroes. If a white knuckle ride of terror is not your thing, there’s plenty of other activities in La Plagne from snow-shoeing to fat biking to ice skating to really tough sessions being pampered in a spa. There are loads of great restaurants around the villages too, but for the best nightlife head to Belle Plagne.
