We have been proud to provide you with free access to snow reports, resort guides and more, and we are beyond grateful for your readership and contributions to our community over the years.

Unfortunately given the changing media landscape, Mountain News Corporation has experienced financial declines in recent years. With additional economic challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic now facing our business, it is not financially viable to continue operating.

Mountain News Corporation and our OnTheSnow and Skiinfo websites will be shutting down. We will explore the possibility of selling, partnering, or contributing assets to another media outlet if there is an opportunity to allow for a consistent or enhanced online experience.

Overview

Welcome to Montchavin Les Coches, the resort at the foot of La Plagne ski area! In Montchavin (altitude: 1250 m) you can savour the authentic old-fashioned charm of a village that's kept its original structure; and in Les Coches (at 1450 m), relish the warm friendly atmosphere of a resort where wood and stone hold sway. Montchavin Les Coches is an integral part of the huge La Plagne ski area, to which it contributes one of the finest stretches of skiing. It is now at the hub of one of the world's largest ski areas, accommodating one of the stations of the Vanoise Express, the cable car that links La Plagne to Les Arcs thus creating Paradiski.
