France, Paradiski Ski Area
From traditional, sleepy villages to bustling and lively, ski-to-the-door resorts, the huge ski area of La Plagne is a dazzling fusion of ten separate villages each with its own distinctive character. Belle Plagne, built in the chalet style is the most scenic village, while Plagne Centre has superb bars and restaurants. The variety of villages is replicated in the range of ski runs. Throughout the resort there is excellent skiing and snowboarding - no matter your ability. Plagne Soleil is ideally situated in a sunny snow bowl and offers easy ski-in/ski-out accommodation perfect for beginners, while up on the Bellecôte glacier there is some of the most challenging off-piste in Europe, a must for passionate freeriders.
Intermediates are exceptionally well catered for as well. The long and winding pistes of La Plagne are ideal for perfecting your parallel turns. A high proportion of blue and red runs means exploring the mountains on your skis couldn’t be simpler. And what an area you have to explore! This superb ski area is linked to Les Arcs by one of the world’s largest cable cars, the Vanoise Express, forming the huge Paradiski domain with 425kms of runs.
As a thriving winter resort there is also plenty to keep you occupied away from the slopes. Après-ski activities include tobogganing, bobsleigh, ice climbing, and airboarding. You can even choose to spend the night in an igloo.
