Skiing and snowboarding in La Plagne

You'll feel on top of the world in La Plagne where most of the runs are between 2000m and 2700m, which in turn contributes to the resort's snow-sure reputation. Beginners will love the generous nursery slopes right on the doorstep of our Chalet hotel Christina and the high quality skis and snowboards that are available to hire.

On the mountain

Le Plagne is the most popular ski resort in the world, attracting millions of visitors each year. A beautiful and serene setting amidst the French Alps, it is the perfect ski holiday destination for families and friends. Take in the wonderful sights of this picturesque town as you ski or snowboard down the mountain. It is ideal for beginners and intermediates with lots of wide slopes giving new skiers the chance to spread their wings and discover the thrill of high-mileage skiing.

For expert skiers, La Plagne offers 37 black runs with descents steep enough to challenge any skilled skier. Professionals set their sights on the Bellcote glacier with its superb long black pistes and untracked powder slopes - a rare opportunity to ski descents of more than 2000 vertical metres. And there's more! Take the spectacular double-decker Vanoise Express cable car to the Paradiski ski area of La Plagne and Les Arcs to open up over 425kms of piste skiing.

Around the town

La Plagne is made up of several purposely built villages connected by a ski lift system. Chalet Hotel Christina is conveniently located in front of the piste with lifts situated opposite the hotel and ski schools just a short 150 metres away.

With a large variety of activities available both on and off the slopes, La Plagne is a top-choice destination for a family ski holiday. Visitors love the selection of family-friendly activities the resort offers such as dog sledding, zip lining, ice climbing, bobsleighing and much more. Get in touch with nature by taking on any of the marked trails which will take you on a journey of magnificent landscapes and if you’re lucky even some wildlife spotting including golden eagles and ibex.

Enjoy a memorable night out with friends at any of the various bars located across the 10 villages throughout the resort or take the family for a night of bowling or to the cinema.

There is no better way to learn another country’s culture than through taste, so head on down to any of the restaurants in the resort to indulge in some authentic Savoie cuisine which includes sausage and dumplings as well as an assortment of delicious, local cheeses. Curl up by the fire, sip on a glass of wine and enjoy a tasty meal while taking in the stunning views of the French Alps.
