Aime La Plagne Reviews
La Plagne is firmly on the radar for families as well as beginner and intermediate skiers. Masses of wide open piste are perfect for those finding their feet or building their skills. Experienced skiers shouldn't avoid the resort though, as with a little bit of exploring the off piste turns out to be fantastic. High altitude and a glacier guarantee early and late season skiing.
