Spotlight On La Plagne

THE SKIING
Smack bang in the middle of the mighty Tarentaise Valley is La Plagne. Head in one direction you’re into Les Arcs and in the other direction into Champagny. La Plagne itself is comprised of 11 interconnecting resorts including; Plagne Centre, Aime-La-Plagne, Champagny-en-Vanoise, Montchavin, Plagne Villages, Plagne Bellecote, Les Coches, Montalbert, Plagne 1800, Belle Plagnes and Plagne Soleil. Now that is some ski area! Paradiski itself comprising of all the Les Arcs, La Plagne and all the satellite villages is amongst the biggest ski areas in the world.

With introduction of La Plagne the Snoworks programme encompasses every resort within the Tarentaise Valley.

Local ski instructor Euan Gardiner joined Team Snoworks in 2016. Euan had been based in La Plagne for 8 seasons with Oxygen Ski School and lives locally. Euan knows La Plagne like the back of his hand and will be heading our La Plagne program along with other members of the Snoworks team.

“The skiing in La Plagne itself covers an altitude from the lowest resort at 1,250m to the highest skiing at 3,250 m on the Bellcote glacier. La Plagne has 225 kilometres of pisted slopes including 134 pistes: 15 black, 30 red and 72 blue. The off-piste skiing in La Plagne can be easily accessed with some amazing areas and combine this with the area of Les Arcs and you have some immense off-piste skiing. Take a bus up to Tignes and ski off-piste all the way back to Champagny en Haut via the Tarentaise Tour. Head up to the top of the Bellecote and take the North Face off-piste to Nancroix. Head across to Les Arcs and take the east face of the Aguille Rouge down to Villaroger. Add this to all the easily accessible off-piste from the ski lifts and you have an amazing off-piste destination. La Plagne is an All-Terrain paradise” Euan Gardiner.
