La Plagne is the most popular ski resort in the world with more than 2.5 million visitors a season on average.
La Plagne is a modern ski resort offering variety through its collection of 11 small concentric villages, each having a different appeal to visitors.
The ski resort spans the valley and its river, with the snow-capped peaks of the Alps as the backdrop. Each of the 11 villages has its own personality. One caters specifically to families, another comes alive after dark, and yet another still draws its energy from its historical heritage.

La Plagne and the neighbouring resort of Les Arcs form the Paradiski ski area.
From the long, tree-lined runs in Montchavin to deep powder on the Bellecote glacier, La Plagne has 134 slopes stretching across 225 kilometres, including 10 green, 72 blue, 30 red and 15 black.
Stay close to shops and restaurants in Plagne Centre, in a traditional chalet in the oldest part of the resort, Plagne 1800.
Maybe choose a self-catering apartment at the higher altitude, Plagne Soleil, Plagne Villages or Aime La Plagne.
A few minutes’ bus ride down the road is Belle Plagne, the newest part of the resort, while Les Coches is on the other side of the mountain next to the Vanoise Express, which connects La Plagne to Les Arcs.
