La Plagne ski area is the perfect playground for skiers and snowboarders of all abilities, with an impressive 225 km of pistes, as well as links to Les Arcs (which itself has 200 km of pistes) via the Vanoise Express.
Although the resort has mostly blue runs – ideal for gaining confidence – it is also home to challenging reds, fabulous blacks and exciting off piste terrain. Beginners can also make use of the five Coolski zones based around La Plagne. These protected areas, with their own lifts and lift pass (€37 per day), are perfect for learning the basics before exploring the rest of the pistes. In addition, the resort also has 186 km of cross-country skiing, 40 km of ski touring trails and a fun snowpark for free style skiing.
70% off the skiing sits above 2,000 metres in altitude, meaning good snow conditions throughout the long season.
The ski area even has its own app – Yuge, an ultra-personalized and self-learning application specially designed for the Paradiski® area. You can use it to track your routes, discover new places, take some pictures and avoid lift queues, so it’s definitely a good idea to download it before your visit!
