Nice variety of pistes

Full review

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.
