Skiing is made easy by a superb position in the ski area. Directly opposite the accommodation is a blue run, ski in less than 5 minutes to the next village – Bellecote, with 3x express chairlifts and a gondola taking you to 4x different areas on the mountain. One more lift and you will be on the Glacier at 3250m or, in another direction to the telecabine which links La Plagne to Les Arcs which makes up the Paradiski area. Chalet location at 2050m, skiing in/out is possible throughout the season.

Also, if of interest, we can offer a choice of approaches to catering for your convenience - and budget.

The Area: La Plagne (belle Plagne), Paradiski, La Plagne
La Plagne is one of the most popular destinations for skiers and snowboarders travelling from the UK. In the Resort-Seekers bible 'Where To Ski And Snowboard', La Plagne is ranked in the top 4 - worldwide!
The resort excels for the intermediate. The piste network has extensive blue and red runs connecting it, so there are no 'beyond-ability' sections on the lift map for the majority of skiers and snowboarders.
This does not mean advanced skiers and snowboarders are neglected. 'Fall-line Skiing', the free-skiers magazine, refers to La Plagne as having '…some scary off-piste'. There are 13 blacks to test you - and when the fresh snow falls, the tracks under lifts, between runs, and from the glacier, are evidence of many routes away from the pistes that can be sampled.
Off-piste, a guide is recommended; especially to take advantage of the routes off the north face of the glacier (3250m) - dropping 2km vertical into Nancroix (1200m) making for one of the truly classic Alpine descents.
SnowPark, Half-pipe and Boarder Cross are only 1x lift away.
For beginners there are free lifts and nursery areas on which you can practice.
La Plagne has been linked with the Les Arcs ski area since the 2003/4 Season, resulting in a massive ski area to rival The 3 Valleys and Espace Killy - giving 240 pistes over 425km of skiing. Thus, in theory, with a 6 day lift pass, it is possible to ski 40 different runs each day without doing the same one twice!
Resort height: 1250m-3250m
Km of piste: 425km
Green pistes: 12
Blue pistes: 132
Red pistes: 65
Black pistes: 29
Belle Plagne is ideally suited to take advantage of this extensive area - being only 2 lifts away from the impressive Vanoise Express telecabine - 200 skiers and boarders on a double decker telecabine; we don't know of a bigger, faster or smoother one.
