The Perfect 'Friends' Ski Holiday in La Plagne
La Plagne is the perfect resort for a ski holiday ‘entre amies’ (with friends). Let’s dive into why…
Firstly, La Plagne is a great resort for beginners, intermediates and advanced skiers or snowboarders and is classified as one of the best ski resorts in the world. In total there are 136 runs - 8 greens, 75 blues, 35 reds and 18 blacks - and with over 225 km of slopes there is a large choice to choose from for all levels in your group. In fact you can literally cover an average of 37 kilometres per day on a 6 day standard La Plagne lift pass. This, however, does not include Les Arcs! If you choose to get a Paradiski lift pass you can more or less double your figures… 425km of pisted runs at your ski tips. A sliding heaven!
A La Plagne lift pass bought in resort costs 271€ (per adult) or 217€ (per child), however remember when you book with us we offer some you special reduced prices on lift passes, both for La Plagne and Paradiski.
Depending on what you are looking for, La Plagne has a large choice of bars! You can choose your ‘aprés-ski’ (after ski entertainment) depending on your mood, from relaxing aperitifs after a hard day on the slopes to dancing the night away (possible on tables!). For a pint of beer you’ll be looking between 6€-11€, a glass of wine around 5€-7€, hot chocolate around 4€-6€ and soft drinks from 3€ to 5€.

The choice of restaurants are also large and varied, from snack food or take-away pizza to à la carte menus full of delicious French specialities, the choice is yours. A little tip for cheese lovers, don’t forget La Plagne is located in Savoie, a place known for its cheese, specifically Beaufort and Tomme. So when you are here a ‘must-try’ is a local fondue, raclette or tartiflette. An evening in a restaurant can cost between 20€-50€ per person (depending on what you order).
Apart from skiing or snowboarding, La Plagne has loads of other activities to do too. For example, did you know La Plagne is home to the only Bobsleigh run in Europe open to the public to try out? There are a few options to choose from and prices start from 48€pp.
You can go extreme sledging (at night time too). For example, the Superluge Derby with Oxygène Ski costs 30€pp. Why not slide down a 600 meter zip-wire from Aime 2000 to Plagne Centre? The SuperTyro costs 15€pp. You can also go bowling for 12€pp, ice-skating (3€-7€) or swimming in a heated outdoor pool (5€-10€pp, free for 5 years and younger). There’s a number of excellent spas in the resort too, or you even book a massage with a company that will come to your accommodation. A spa session or massage can cost between 45€ to 160€ depending on what you are looking for.
