La Plagne resort is made for skiing families, catering to individual needs with everything from a pedestrianised village centre to English-speaking instructors and children’s ski areas. |
At this resort, families can stay in comfortable La Plagne chalets situated within the picturesque ski village in a location that has been awarded the ‘Family Plus’ accreditation.
Ski Facilities for Children and Beginners
The expansive ski range across La Plagne includes routes for all levels of skiers, including beginners. With a significant number of blue runs, this range is well-suited to beginners and youngsters who are getting to grips with the basics of skiing and snowboarding. On these routes, there is direct access to Montalbert (at 1,350m) from Roche de Mio, which stands at 2,700m.
There are also wide blue runs and red runs for intermediate skiers, which stretch across 425km. These are perfect for those who are slightly more advanced and are looking to challenge themselves a bit.
Other activities include an ice grotto, ice-rink, swimming pool, and bowling.
One of the amenities available at one of the popular chalets in the resort is the inclusion of a nursery and various other childcare services. The nursery provided for guests at Chalet Hotel Deux Domaines cares for children from 17 weeks old to 40 months with fully qualified nursery staff. For slightly older children (those who are between 3 and 4 years old), Spritelets promises a half-day of ski-play. This introduces toddlers to the world of skiing in a fun and simple way.
The Esprit Classic Childcare service is structured seamlessly so that parents can leave their accommodation in the morning to hit the slopes while the children are cared for by English-speaking staff. Similarly, the collection service allows littlies who are enrolled in Esprit classes and Spritelet Snow Clubbers to be collected from hotel meeting points and taken to the slopes.
ESF Ski School also offers a more general childcare service and the resort has several private nanny services.
Clubs and Lessons for the Young Ones
There are plenty opportunities for youngsters to enrol in skiing lessons, with Sprite classes for beginners, improvers, intermediates, and Xtra classes. These lessons are categorised according to age and skiing level, ranging from blue to red runs.
For older children, families may consider the Cozy Club or the Cocoa Club. The former is for those from 3-12 years old with quiet time for pre-bed stories as well as playtime, while the latter is for 5-15 year olds. Cocoa Club is a supervised evening club that runs from 7.30pm to 10pm.
The Snow Club, in the Deux Domaines, includes outings with lots of activities in the snow. Little ones who are participating in the afternoon Sprites or Spritelets classes will be taken to and collected from their sessions.
