One of the biggest ski resorts in the Alps, La Plagne has a number of different shops dotted throughout the town. If you are looking to pick up some groceries, or snacks to eat on the mountain, there are a number of small super markets close to Mark Warner’s Chalet Hotel Christina.
The superb location of the hotel in La Plagne Centre means that Mark Warner guests are at the heart of the town and within easy reach of the local shops. While in the town, make sure you take some time to visit the traditional cheese and wine shops. A great holiday gift for loved ones, the large variety of different cheese and accompanying wines is a foodies dream. In addition to food shops the town also has plenty of souvenir shops where you can pick up a keepsake of the town or holiday gift.
If you are in need of some extra ski gear or have left something at home, there are plenty of sports shops in the centre of the resort which stock all of the latest ski equipment; from hats and gloves; to snowboards and salopettes.
La Plagne is most famous for its large number of beginner friendly runs, yet intermediate and advanced skiers also flock to the resort for the tricky runs in and around the Paradiski ski area. One of the best areas for intermediates is around the Bellecote glacier where skiers can tackle a number of tricky reds and steep black runs. The impressive glacier which sits at a massive 3,417 meters is also the venue for the resort’s well known ice caves. An exciting place to take the children and you will find an array of ice sculptures inside the caves.
