Snowsure La Plagne in France makes up one half of the world-famous and vast 425km Paradiski area. With over 240 perfectly groomed pistes, each one with jaw-dropping scenery, it's no wonder this is one of our favourites resorts.

Being such a large area lends La Plagne to being a great all-rounder. Beginners have miles of wide, gentle runs while the speedy can cruise the area all day and not ski the same run twice! The glacier makes sure that you'll always have good snow too.

Everything here is big. The choice of runs, the snowparks, the glacier; it's even home to the world's biggest cable car, the double-decker Vanoise Express which links to Les Arcs (well worth a trip just for the experience).

Our accommodation is in laid-back Belle Plagne at 2050m. It's one of 10 villages that makes up La Plagne and is purpose built in its style which means it's convenient. You can ski to and from virtually anywhere in the resort.
