The short season review of 2019/2020 – a season to remember, for both good and bad. A look back at the year of Coronavirus. A winter of closures across the Alps and a (temporary?) end to global tourism. Despite the abrupt conclusion, be sure of one thing. Just like a bad Arnie punchline, we’ll be back. We will definitely be back. La Plagne season 2019-20.

La Plagne is a French ski area in the Tarentaise (Isère) valley in the Savoie department of France. The resort joined with neighbouring Les Arcs in 2003, to form the massive Paradiski ski area. Paradiski is the third-largest ski area in the world behind Trois Vallées and Les Portes du Soleil.
La Plagne and Les Arcs lie in the centre of huge skiing region containted in the Vanoise National Park including such resorts as Val d’Isère, Tignes, La Rosière, Sainte Foy, Valmorel, Pralognan-la-Vanoise and the resorts of Les Trois Vallées (Val Thorens, Les Menuires, St Martin de Belleville, Brides-les-Bains, Méribel, Méribel Mottaret, La Tania and the various Courchevel elevations). Transport to and from these resorts is relatively easy, mainly along the valley floor. For Trois Vallées, the easiest access is via Champagny, followed by taxi to Courchevel.
La Plagne is the most popular ski resort in the world with more than 2.5 million visitors a season. The ski area is best suited to advanced beginner / intermediate level – though there is a wealth of easily-accessible, very challenging off-piste (in particular, off the Bellecôte glacier). You need a guide to find and safely ride the out-of-bounds terrain in La Plagne.
La Plagne accommodation ranges from functional self-catering apartments (often in rather ugly buildings) up to luxury chalet and hotel lodgings. The resort itself is split into 11 different villages, each with their own distinct personality.
Families are best advised to stay in the quieter, lower resorts of Champagny, Montalbert or Montchavin / Les Coches and, to a degree, Plagne 1800. Higher up options included Plagne Villages and Plagne Soleil – both very quiet at night – though there is still access to Plagne Centre.
Plagne Centre accommodation is mainly in hotels and apartments (with a few chalet options too). The nightlife in Centre is more varied with more options than any of the other satellite stations. Centre is linked to Aime 2000 by a small cable car which runs until around midnight – after which there are options by bus.
Aime 2000 itself is fairly ugly monstrosity built high above Centre.The views here to Mont Blanc are breathtaking – but the resort itself is limited in terms of nightlife. The station is very popular with French families – as well as local lift staff/ski instructors.
In the neighbouring valley over a ridge above Plagne Villages and Plagne Soleil lies Plagne Bellecôte and Belle Plagne. Bellecôte features stark, ugly – but highly functional – apartment accommodation. Much like Centre, most facilities are contained within one main building. There are two main nightclubs and one main bar (Spitting Feathers).
For other nightlife, you should consider taking the bus to Plagne Centre or the Bellecôte télécabine to Belle Plagne (open til midnight). Belle Plagne is the newest of the La Plagne resorts and also features probably the best nightlife and biggest range of accommodation including chalets, apartments and hotels.
