There is a huge variety of different types of pistes so in terms of the skiing, there is something for everyone. There is an almost 2000 metre descent from the glacier down to Montchavin. La Plagne is basically made up of clusters of apartment buildings and hotels scattered around the mountain so there is no lively central hub, just several smaller centres. I was in Plagne Soleil which was boring but not quite as ugly as some of the other areas. The only good thing was that it was ski in/out. The worst thing about La Plagne is the overcrowding. 20 to 30 minutes queues at the lifts is not acceptable. It was only busy in the centre of the mountains, if you skied to Montalbert, Montchavin, Les Coches and Champagny it wasn't so bad. The worst queues were in Plagne Bellecotte, Plagne Soleil and Plagne Centre. There is even more apartments being built so unless they invest in more lifts, the situation is going to get worse so because of that I would not recommend going in February and I won't be returning....

Had an amazing week with Neilsons at Belle Plagne, w/c 18th March. Great location for getting to both La Plagne and Les Arc ski areas. I must say we spent the majority of time over in Les Arcs areas as pistes were fantastic, wide and open, great lifts and runs to get all the way over to The Grande Col! However, bit slushy after 2.30pm getting down to the Vanoise Express and an exciting blue (French classification!) on the other side to Salla lift getting back to Belle Plagne!!!! The views from Verdons over to Courcheval airport were amazing too. Great cafes, restaurants and bars on pistes and in villages, especially the white restaurant on Arpette run. ELPro ski shop in Belle Plagne is fantastic. Enjoy... Full Review

A great resort that is really inclusive, including being a centre for Antenne Handicap - accessible skiing. Most accommodation offers ski in, ski out. Good local fare in restaurants. Ski’ing and views in the Vanoise Valley and on the Glacier are stunning. ... Full Review

Staying at Club Med La Plagne since xmas eve and it is perfect! 2m of snow had fallen previous week and now on day 3 more heavy snow will make a good season. Slopes are busy but lifts seem to clear quickly and easy to cross the valley and ski where you want. Pleny of good blue and red runs that suit beginners and younger skiers. Instructor are great and push you to improve. This is our first family holiday with teenage girls. Staff and hotel are fantastic and so friendly and warm. Food and rooms great with plenty to do in the evening. Family holiday none will forget! Enjoy !! We would recommend this for families rather than Olympic hopefuls but we all have to start somewhere and this is the perfect place. ... Full Review
