La Plagne ski & snowboard holidays take you to the Tarentaise Valley in the French Alps. This purpose built resort began life in the early sixties and it is now comprised of ten villages, all very close to each other and linked by ski buses. Together with Les Arcs, they form the Paradiski ski area. This gives well over four hundred kilometres of piste. The resort lies at eighteen hundred metres with the highest lift reaching thirty-two hundred metres. At this fairly high altitude, cheap La Plagne ski holidays have a good snow record. In the unlikely event that precipitation has been meagre, there are snow making facilities over twenty percent of the runs. La Plagne ski trips are very popular as the choice of resorts, each with their own character and atmosphere, manage to please everyone. It is a great family resort with excellent facilities for children. Childcare is available from the age of six months until four years and there are two children's clubs from four to eleven. If you wish to make use of these facilities you must produce evidence of approppriate vaccinations.
There are nursery slopes are adjacent to each of the villages and with very competent English speaking instructors, beginners will quickly gain in skill and confidence and be able to enjoy the many greens and blues. Paradiski really is a paradise for intermediates as they have a vast choice of pistes with wonderful powder fields, tree-lined runs and the long run down from Grande Rochette to Plagne Centre. Since seventy percent of the runs are blues and reds, intermediates can find new challenges each day. Advanced skiers favour the Bellecote Glacier and there are testing runs on the mountains's north face. The off-piste skiing can also be very demanding. There are three snow parks for boarders and twenty-two kilometres of trails for cross country skiers.
