Extreme, Epic, Entertaining: Get Adventurous in La Plagne


 
Travel & Tourism
La Plagne is a huge ski resort made up of eleven separate villages, hundreds of kilometres of pistes and even more off-piste action. Although catering to all experience levels, the ski area has some of the most to offer expert skiers as any other resort in the Alps. La Plagne is also a fun night out with plenty of bars like Le Saloon, an American themed club and bar, and Igloo Igloo, yes you guessed it, a bar shaped like an igloo. Both have great DJs and late-night disco parties to liven up those later hours.

The Skiing

La Plagne may be well known as an intermediate resort, but the large choice of expert-difficulty descents gives skilled skiers plenty to get their teeth into. The best black runs in the resort are to be found on the Bellecote Glacier. Both blacks here are extremely steep with some of the bumps left in for extra difficulty. The Montalbert Valley slopes, in the north-west corner of the ski area, are also great for a challenge and are amply supplied with good quality lifts so the runs remain nice and open. Once at the top, start at Morbleu and follow the Emile Allais run through the trees and onto the zigzagging blacks of Les Charmettes.

Off-Piste

Off-piste is where expert skiers really test their metal. La Plagne has a reputation as one of the best places for off-piste action. On the flanks of the resort, lift-accessed tree skiing areas let skiers fight their way through trickier descents, dodging trees, rocks and sometimes animals as they go. There are also plenty of descents between the black runs, ripe for ambitious skiers. The best of these can be found between pistes on Le Grande Rochette and Roche de Mio.

The Gros Glacier

For the craziest, most exhilarating of all the off-piste action in La Plagne, the bravest skiers attempt the Gros Glacier descent. If you have a taste for adrenaline rushes and extreme sport then the face of the glacier is for you. For the extremely difficult but amazingly rewarding plunge down the glacier-side, you will definitely need a guide so make sure you sort one out beforehand. You can also make your way down this beautiful natural wonder by abseiling and walking through tight couloirs if you prefer the more scenic route.

How to Get There

La Plagne is a very well-established ski area with excellent connections to the outside world. Major airlines such as easyJet and British Airways fly direct to Geneva, with a fight time of only 90 minutes from London to Geneva Airport. Ski transfers will take you straight from the tarmac to the resort in just over 2 hours, so the journey time is never too onerous.

Shuttle Direct offers a reliable, low-cost transfer service straight to La Plagne from Geneva Aiport. Ski transfers are subject to a fixed cost agreed beforehand so no messing about with money once you get there. If your party includes experienced skiers with their own equipment, Shuttle Direct will take it along too if you let them know in advance.

Author Plate

Lukas Johannes is a driver for Shuttle Direct, the number one provider of shared and private airport transfers all over Europe and northern Africa. If you’re looking for affordable Geneva airport ski transfers, Lukas and his colleagues can make sure that you and your luggage get to and from the airport swiftly and safely.
