La Plagne has a wide and varied ski area with many kilometres of easy blue runs combined with the more challenging terrain of the Roche de Mio and surrounding off-piste. La Plagne makes a great destination for family or mixed ability group skiing holidays.
The skiing .....: The forests and glaciers of the linked ski areas of La Plagne and Les Arcs create Paradiski making it one of the largest ski domains in the world. The Vanoise Express links Les Coches to Plan Peisey in Les Arcs giving access to 425km of runs allowing skiers of all levels to enjoy the variety of skiing and boarding available. Just 2 minutes walk from our apartment, an easy short ski to Montchavin, one chairlift up and an easy ski down to the Vanoise Express brings you to the door of Paradiski within 15 minutes. With 2 skiable glaciers as well as some of the highest peaks (Bellecôte in La Plagne at 3416m and Aiguille Rouge in Les Arcs at 3226m) there is guaranteed skiing all season long.
..... and more .....: Les Coches is north-facing and has a number of snow-making machines so almost guaranteeing snow way beyond Easter. You can ski or snowboard back to the village and there are some great runs home to Les Coches. There are a variety of blue and red pistes through the trees to get you home.
..... and finally : at the end of the day, what better way to unwind after a hard days' skiing than to take a dip in the pool, followed by relaxing tired muscles in the jacuzzi, sauna or steam room, then to stroll back to the apartment and catch the afternoon rays of the sun on the balcony with a cool glass of local wine or beer taking in the breathtaking views of the Beaufortain Mountains and fabulous sunsets over Mont Blanc.
