La Plagne Skiing

La Plagne is located in the idyllic Vanoise National Park of the French Alps, renowned for its family-friendly atmosphere as well as its variety of skiing terrain. Since 2003, La Plagne has been connected to the Les Arcs resort via the Vanoise Express, forming Paradiski, the 2nd largest linked ski area in the world.

Paradiski invites you to explore over 425 kilometers (264 miles) of slopes, and there's something for everyone. From perfectly maintained beginner runs to heart-pounding off-piste adventures, Paradiski opens a door to endless possibilities.

For Beginners:

Across La Plagne, you'll find 67 blue pistes and 9 green pistes. There are also five beginners lifts and 18 free magic carpet or button lifts dotted throughout the resort. In the majority of La Plagne's resorts there are designated beginners' areas, separated from the rest of the pistes and designed to offer a safe space to find your feet.

For Intermediates / Advanced

From the top of almost every lift in La Plagne, there's a blue piste waiting. Intermediates can traverse the entire resort solely by taking blue runs, of which there are 74 in total. For those that want to travel further afield, the Paradiski ski pass allows you to tackle the slopes of the neighbouring Les Arcs ski area as well — giving you a combined total of 425km worth of pistes to choose from.

Off-Piste

The glacier is the main focus for off-pisting in La Plagne, featuring renowned runs on its north face with routes like the infamous 'Couloir Canadian' and the more accessible 'Petit Face Nord'. In fresh snow, the smaller villages are ideal, with Champagny's Verdons Sud side of the Grand Rochette offering vast open terrain and Montchavin/Les Coches providing tree-lined runs that are perfect for bad weather days. Due to avalanche risks, a guide is essential for glacier and off-piste runs.

Staying in La Plagne

Each of La Plagne's resorts are self-contained, with their own bars, restaurants, shops and ski schools. There are six high-altitude, purpose-built resorts (between 1800m to 2100m): Belle Plagne, Plagne Villages/Soleil, Aime la Plagne, Plagne 1800, Plagne Bellecôte and Plagne Centre. The smaller villages of the domain including Montchavin, Montalbert and Les Coches are found between 1250m-1450m and have excellent lift links to higher altitudes. Each resort is well connected by ski lifts and pistes, so having lunch in a different resort each day is a breeze.

Our Chalet Myrtille is located in Montchavin, a charming, historic farming village known for its beautiful cobbled streets and traditional wooden chalets, with Savoyard stone and slate roofs. As a north-facing location, it boasts reliable snow conditions, and the quality of snow making facilities there is exceptional.

Getting to La Plagne

If you are flying to La Plagne then we would highly recommend you fly into Geneva (GVA) airport. Geneva airport is 198 kilometres from La Plagne and has a transfer time up to 2 hours and 30 minutes. A lot of this is on motorway. This is the route almost everyone who flies in takes.

Chambéry Airport (CMF) is 117 kilometres from La Plagne, and has a transfer time of one hour and 30 minutes, but offers fewer transfer options. If you need recommendations for transfer options, please let us know and we can help you plan your travel.

Alternatively, you can use public transport from Geneva, Chambery and Lyon airports, as our Chalet Myrtille is located in Montchavin, only 5 minutes from the nearest train station (Landry). And we provide a free shuttle from there to the chalet (subject to availability). Free secure garage parking is also available by arrangement for guests wanting to drive.

The amazing sights of the peaks of Chamonix

Just returned from a 5 day ski trip. Comfortable rooms and every member of staff were really friendly and welcoming. Great to relax in the sauna, although I wasn't brave enough to use the pool (too cold). Great little bar. Loved the balcony with views of Mont Blanc and a delicious continental breakfast.

Lovely HotelAs usual we were met with a warm welcome. The facilities at this hotel are really good. The service is excellent and the breakfast is good. The hotel is about 100mtrs or so from the small village ski slope which is a great way to get your ski legs. For the more adventurous skier there is easy transport provided by the hotel to and from the hotel. This is a lovely hotel which is in a lovely ski village but not far away from the bigger town of Chamonix. The decor and rooms are nice.. my only minus point is that the single beds are a bit narrow, but not a major problem. Once again Many Thanks to Hotel du Bois for a very enjoyable stay.

A friendly welcoming hotel with good facilities.I visited in January 2019 for a few days skiing. The staff are friendly and helpful and all speak English. The hotel is attractively and interesting, the rooms are well decorated, clean and comfortable. I had a room with a view of the mountains. There is an comfortable well stocked bar with a fire. A pleasant place to sit. The restaurant has a small but varied menu with a daily set menu that is particularly good value. The food fresh, hot and delicious. Altogether the service was excellent. A courtesy bus to the ski lift and back, morning and afternoon. I'd thoroughly recommend it, and will plan to visit again. And there's a swimming pool-which looks fine, although I didn't use it myself.

Ski Gathering trip to ChamonixReally great holiday last week skiing in Chamonix with the Ski Gathering. Our group of six strangers were booked into Hotel du Bois for the week. It's been a long time since I experienced such great personal hospitality, warmth and friendliness. Skiing was excellent, helped by great conditions and great new friends made on the trip. But the holiday was enhanced massively through the quality of the service we received at the hotel. Food was excellent as was the advice on ski locations and runs. The shuttle bus was a great asset also. I had a bad fall on the last day and ruptured my ACL. The hotel staff really helped at the hospital and in recovering my skis. Special thanks to Aurora and Jean Marc.
