La Plagne Soleil Ski Resort

La Plagne Soleil and  La Plagne Village are the smallest resorts in the La Plagne domain. Even though they are small they are high altitude benefitting from excellent snow conditions and just a short bus journey from La Plagne Centre. Plagne Soleil has several restaurants, ski hire shops and ski schools as well as a Spar but for any other shops and entertainment you will need to visit Plagne Centre or one of the other larger villages in resort. It is possible to walk to Plagne Centre, walking there is downhill but walking back is up hill so you may wish to wait for a bus on your return journey. The bus runs all day between 8:30 am and 11:30 pm (check times before travel in the evening as they will be less frequent).

What’s more, reaching the slopes here is easy enough as the village is located between several blue runs which lead down into Plagne Centre and La Bergerie chairlift.
