Ski area La Plagne

With the lift pass "Domaine La Plagne", you can discover 127 pistes with a total length of 225 km and 94 lifts ranging between 1,207 and 3,250 m. All major ski slopes from the main four peaks of Roche de Mio (2,700 m), La Grande Rochette (2,505 m), Les Verdons (2,500 m) and Le Biolley (2,350 m) end in the semicircular bowl of La Plagne. Any spot in the ski area can be reached from any of the ski centres!

The undisputed highlight is the 15 km long descent from the Bellecôte-Glacier to Montchavin at phenomenal altitudes over 2,000 m. The 2-persons chairlift "Traversée" that has been working for 35 years, has now been replaced by a 4-persons chairlift that will take you safely to the demanding runs at the Bellecôte. The snowboard areas with halfpipes, boardercross and other extras round off La Plagne's fantastic offer. In La Plagne, you can even find Europe's longest fun slope!
For beginners, at every station there are level slopes; the tree-free slopes at Belle Plagne are especially good for a first attempt. The entry into the ski area has been switched to the centre of La Plagne: A beginners area and a new green piste have been created and the 4-persons chairlift "Bécoin" has been replaced by a 6-persons lift.

The deep powder snow areas promise an absolute highlight for off-piste fans. Especially the Face Nord, the north facing side of the Bellcôte glacier, is highly attractive for experienced free riders, however should only be explored with ski guides.

With the upgraded "Paradiski Illimité" lift pass (payable locally), you have daily access to Les Arcs' and La Plagne's total 425 kilometres of piste, which are connected by the modern “Vanoise Express”. Furthermore, with the 6 days lift pass "Paradiski Illimité" you can make use of even more delights, such as a half day skiing on the afternoon of your arrival day, one free entry at the Village Igloo Arc 2000 ice cave and much more (see info on site).
