Resorts close to La Plagne

La Plagne itself is made up of a lot of small villages including Les Coches and Montchavin. These villages are nestled in the tree line and either one would be a great place to stop for lunch.

Les Arcs is La Plagne's nearest neighbour and linked by the world famous Vanoise Express, one of the longest single span cable cars in the world. Together they make up the Paradiski area.

Les Arcs is very easy to access from La Plagne, just head out of La Plagne Centre and in the direction of Les coaches and Montchavin. The runs down to the Vanoise Express on the La Plagne side are so much fun you might want to stay and do them again!

Villaroger is a small resort based in the far corner of the Les Arcs ski area. Villaroger is easy to miss if you don't know the area but a real gem in the terms of quiet skiing. The village itself is based at the foot of a fabulously long run. Head to the Aiguille Rouge, the highest point in Les Arcs, and ski for what seems like forever down through the windy tree lined runs to Villaroger.
