For avid skiers there are few resorts in Europe comparable to the French area of La Plagne. With slopes that will challenge even the most experienced skier and phenomenal après-ski options, the resort definitely merits the popularity it gets. If you’re heading away with a group of like-minded winter adventurers, a La Plagne chalet will provide a wonderful place in which to base yourself. |
Here are some of the reasons why this area deserves its sky-high reputation.
Big is Better
The sheer size of this resort makes it worth the trip alone. It’s the largest ski resort in the world and sees over two million day passes purchased every year. With more than 200 kilometres of slopes there is something to suit every level of skier, and the more advanced skiers will be delighted with the wide range that spreads out over the snow and forested areas. With the biggest cable car in the world among its many attributes, you certainly won’t be bored as you make your way across 134 slopes.
The region is a natural wonder as well and the spectacular alpine views will get you excited for a day out on the mountain. The views only get better when you head up in the cable car to the many slopes that sit above 2000 metres!
A Haven for the Experienced
There are plenty of black and red routes that will challenge even the most experienced among your group. With lots of backcountry routes on offer, they offer a great way to explore the area, and an off-piste tour of the area is a fantastic way to spend time with a group of similarly skilled skiers.
Time to Wind Down
The resort is home to a number of small villages, each with their own unique charm and attractions. Wherever your group decides to make a base you won’t be disappointed with the sheer variety of drinking and dining options. There are clubs, discos and late-night bars for those who like the after-party as much as the daytime adventure.
Another top thing to try here, which is just a short hop from many La Plagne chalets, is the snow park. It’s got excellent safety features, so you can try your most daring moves without having to worry about injury. Give the half-pipe a go and work your way through the different difficulty levels.
Where to Stay
The variety of La Plagne chalets makes a great option for large or small groups. The catered accommodation is perfect for those who want to both eat in as well as explore the fantastic restaurants in the area. If you have a large group, renting the entire chalet is a great way to get the most out of your holiday.
With so many great slopes, restaurants and activities, it’s no wonder that people continue to flock to La Plagne. Chalet accommodation here is world class, and there’s every chance that you and your friends will fall instantly in love with this amazing resort!
