Indeed, with so many resorts grouped together, you are bound to find something to suit you:

  • Champagny en Vanoise, Plagne Montalbert, Montchavin and Les Coches, for the village resorts.

All these destinations are located between 1250 and 2100 metres, but the huge modern ski area reaches an altitude of 3250 metres to offer you 425 kilometres of pistes for all levels, with optimal snow cover.

This family resort for winter and summer sports mixes different atmospheres to satisfy you fully.

A ski area for all levels

10 green, 69 blue, 33 red and 18 black. Crossing forests, dolines and glaciers, the 225 km of runs in the Grande Plagne area have earned an international reputation. Its variety of levels and its accessibility make it a family resort as well as a place prized by high-level skiers.

And for those who can’t get enough, the playground continues with Paradiski, connecting to the Les Arcs area. The programme includes snowparks, freestyle zones, bordercross and cross-country ski runs, all accessible by one of the largest cable cars in the world.

In La Plagne, you can forget about the car! And find your happiness whether you go with your family, your lover or your friends, by tasting mountain dishes, by curling up in a warm chalet, by offering yourself a sauna, by going dancing, bowling, playing an escape game or listening to a live concert in the pretty and lively pub La Mine in the 1800 resort.

Eleven villages to discover

Eleven villages dot the La Plagne ski resort and each has its own personality. Montchavin pampers families, Champagny cultivates the Savoyard tradition, Montalbert is in the heart of nature… As for Aime 2000, it unveils an unobstructed view of Mont Blanc and holds the label “Patrimoine du XXe siècle” (20th century heritage) for its modern architecture… It’s up to you to choose your atmosphere!

Extraordinary activities

Do you love animals? La Plagne offers ski joëring, a sport that originated in Scandinavia. Here it is a horse or a pony that pulls you, on skis! Others can choose a ride in the great white with a dog sled. As for the budding climbers or experienced mountaineers, they will come and taste the pleasure of ice climbing on a 24m high tower. But above all, speed fans will enjoy a bobsleigh track unique in France. The record reached? 134 km/h.

Strong sensations!

Dive under the frozen lake of Tignes, fly over the mountain in a helicopter or paraglider…

Nature lovers and thrill seekers will not be left out. And to fill up on adrenaline, the ski resort of Tignes is equipped with a Bun J Ride ramp. Let’s go for a 40m jump in complete safety!
