With so many beginner-friendly runs, it’s no wonder La Plagne has such a good reputation for family ski holidays. Many of the more forgiving pistes are found at higher altitudes, so Belle Plagne is well-situated for easy access to a number of these nursery slopes and blue runs. If you fancy exploring a bit more of the resort, make a short trip in the télécabine to Plagne Bellecôte where you’ll find the widest selection of gentle blues for the family to ace that snow plough technique.
One of the many advantages of purpose-built ski resorts such as La Plagne is the convenience of ski-in/ski-out accommodation. Could there be anything better at the end of a long day on the mountain than knowing you don’t have to lug three sets of skis and poles back to your hotel? We think not.
Like most French ski resorts, La Plagne is no stranger to the après lifestyle, but it’s certainly not a go-to destination for wild parties and late-night clubbing. The scene is more laid-back here with a few select clubs and bars staying open ‘til late, but the calmer nightlife is definitely a bonus for groups with young ones (or those who need all the sleep they can get to face the early starts).
