Review 10/01/2008
La Plagne was recommended to me as great for families as my two sons (10 & 5yrs) have never been skiing before. We were not disappointed!

We stayed in a self catering apartment in Plagne Soleil, (a small village slightly higher than Plagne Centre) which proved to be a fantastic location. The local Spar shop was 100m away, the ski-school office and daily meeting points were 50m away, and the apartment block is 100% ski-in ski-out to the locker room (no walking or bus rides to think about). One chair-lift is a very short ski away, a useful button-lift is directly outside.

The ski schools for the kids were official ESF, and were very professionally organised. English was well spoken by the instructors (although 90% of students were French, so inevitably the boys missed out some details I’m sure). They both progressed well and were delighted with their certificates and medals at the end (cost €6!)

Also next to the apartment block was a great little nursery area with a drag-rope ideal for messing about with the kids after ski-school, and for sledging in the evening.

The Pistes are very large and the great majority of runs are Blue (“average”) these were generally wide and accommodating, with occasional tricky sections. It’s been 10 years since my wife and I went skiing so this suited us very well. There were many more challenging runs, but we didn’t get to them.

We went over the new year period, and were lucky with plenty of snow at all levels, along with brilliant sunshine for 4 out 6 days. Some ice was beginning to form lower down and on shaded slopes, but nothing too bad.

Only slight negatives would be 2-3hr transfer time from Geneva (but very comfortable coaches were laid on.) There was a limited number of lively restaurants and bars in Plagne soleil (plenty more in Plagne Centre though). The button-lift directly outside the apartment provided excellent access to the pistes, but was not an easy ride, with a wicked kick at the start, making it unsuitable for my two novice skiing children. But the chair lift nearby was no problem for the older one.

Overall, fantastic!
