With a fantastic selection of restaurants and supermarkets alongside some of the best accommodation in the whole of La Plagne, it’s no surprise that people keep on returning to Montchavin.

Skiing in Montchavin

La Plagne has been one of the most popular ski resorts in Europe for many years now, with thousands of travellers making their way over to the French Alps to take advantage of the glorious scenery, views and customer service.

Perhaps the greatest advantage of Montchavin is its terrific range of runs, with three ski areas in easy reach of visitors. The 25km of terrain surrounding the village is ideal for beginners and intermediates, while La Plagne has more than 225km of routes and is also part of the Paradiski ski area opening skiers up to a larger skiable terrain. 

Facilities for beginners are good, with nursery slopes adjacent to each of the villages, and easy runs between each centre. Intermediates are well looked after, with the run from La Grand Rochette to Champagny a particular favourite. Advanced skiers will enjoy the black runs on the Bellecôte glacier, or the long tree-lined runs from Aime La Plagne past Plagne 1800.

For those looking for something a little different, there is 16km of cross-country space around Montchavin. Telemark skiing is also available, which is a mix of Alpine and Nordic skiing.
