The best runs La Plagne, Paradiski
If you’re to get the best of La Plagne’s huge area, you really need a guide. Unfortunately, the French in all their wisdom stopped tour operators offering guiding services around their resorts. This means the only way you’ll be able to get guiding is if you take lessons and, hopefully, your instructor decides to show you around. And that’s kind of the reason for this guide. Note, follow this link for a longer, written version of how to see the best runs in La Plagne.
A route to see the best runs La Plagne
This route starts in Plagne Centre before dropping over the Bellecôte side then crossing over into the Montchavin sector. From there, it’s back up in the direction of Roche de Mio then over to the Champagny side. We take the long Levasset and Les Bois pistes down to the village of Champagny-en-Vanoise.
Taking the gondola back up, you then spend a little time riding the best pistes in the Champagny sector. After that we cross back over to Plagne Centre so as to access the runs around Aime 2000. We then head over to the Montalbert sector. After that, we climb back up the Montalbert side before taking the Cornegidouille piste to La Roche. Then it’s just a case of taking the chair back up to Aime 2000.
From Aime 2000, the route then drops back toward Plagne Centre. However, it cuts off and heads down to Plagne 1800. After that, we take the Mézélets chair up towards the Bergerie chair. This will take us past Plagne Soleil and Plagne Villages. The last step is taking a right at the top towards the best après ski bar in La Plagne – the Bergerie.
