La Plagne FAQ’s

Our Ski Lesson Costs are from

* quoted prices are for 1 – 2 pupils in non-peak weeks. Additional pupils can be added for a fee and prices in peak weeks are higher.

La Plagne is a great ski resort for beginners to learn to ski or snowboard. There are plenty of specific areas designated for first-timers and young kids to learn to ski in a safe environment. There are even lots of free lifts for you to have a go on before you have to buy a lift pass.

Everything you need to know for first-time skiers in La Plagne.

La Plagne sits at a high altitude of 2,150m and is a snow-sure ski resort. The huge network of slopes with access to the Paradiski area is well maintained by the resort staff and if necessary snow is made artificially.

Fly + Airport Transfers

If you’re arriving by air then you’ll probably fly into either Grenoble, Lyon or Geneva.

There are buses from the airport but you will need to change at Moutiers and they’re not cheap so if there is a few of you it often cheaper to share a transfer.

The train is the cheapest option from the airports but again this will involve several changes and the trains are somewhat infrequent.

Drive

It’s about a 9hr drive once in France to reach La Plagne. The benefits of driving are no luggage restrictions and the option of an extra day skiing during a week’s holiday but the tolls can be quite pricey on the motorways so something to consider.

Train

The Eurostar offers overnight trains direct from London St Pancras to Moutiers (about 30mins from La Plagne, at the foot of the mountain). If you don’t mind overnight travel, and can sleep on trains (or are willing to forego sleep) then this can be one of the cheapest and most convenient ways to reach the Alps. Plus, no extra charge for ski carriage. You just need to be able to carry all you can bring…..

La Plagne isn’t an expensive ski resort, compared to many high-end resorts like Courchevel or Verbier. But you can still expect to pay high prices in restaurants on the mountain. La Plagne is suitable for families and all budgets, with a little forward planning.

If you’d like to visit La Plagne on a budget, opt for a self-catering apartment and make a picnic to eat on the mountain at lunchtime to cut costs on the mountain.

Bobsleigh Experience

It’s not for the faint-hearted though as you whizz down between 80-130km an hour! The Bobsleigh in La Plagne offers 3 different experiences with prices starting from 79€. This activity is for the adrenaline junkies and health and height restrictions apply. It’s a truly unique experience that is completely exclusive to La Plagne.

Sledging on the Colorado

A piste in Plagne Centre has been especially designated to sledging, from 1.30pm till 6.30pm, try some extreme sledging. The Colorado has a minimum height restriction of 1m40 and is not for the faint hearted. It’s best to wear ski gear, as you can get and cold very quickly and it’s included with your ski pass.

Paragliding flights

If you fancy the feeling of flying and being the closest a human can be to flying then paragliding is for you. Up on the top of the Grande Rochette in Plagne Centre, Paridifly offers tandem paragliding flights, this offers sensational views over Mont Blanc and the Three Valleys. They will also film your flight for a small supplementary fee. It’s well worth the money and a fantastic experience for the young and not so young!
