Moonlight fun on the slopes
Plagne Centre itself is particularly good for those new to skiing, as there are three areas specifically for beginners right next to the station, including some practice lifts. For more advanced skiers, a powder snow slopes starts in Plagne Centre and goes to La Roche, where La Plagne’s Olympic bobsleigh run is located.
When it comes to fun on the slopes Plagne Centre has 2 particular highlights. Every Wednesday from December to April skiers can carve their turns under a starry sky and enjoy a really special evening. After a cable car trip to the summit of Grande Rochette, participants first enjoy an extensive Savoyard meal. This includes an aperitif and some savoury snacks, wine, a regional cheese fondue, dessert, coffee and a digestif. After these refreshments it’s time to enjoy a blue run in the moonlight back to Plagne Centre. Every skier is equipped with a head torch and accompanied by experienced guides. Children over the age of 10 and those new to the sport are expressly invited to join in this night-time fun on the slopes, but beginners or non-skiers can also book a special service. A “ski-taxi” with a comfortable seat, driven by a ski guide, can transport you safely and comfortably down the slope.
If you’d like to join in more evening outdoor activities, you can try out an evening’s tobogganing. Equipped with a toboggan, helmet and a head torch, participants can enjoy a one-hour toboggan ride to La Roche, accompanied by an experienced guide. When you arrive you can enjoy some mulled wine or hot chocolate before a free shuttle bus takes you back to Plagne Centre.
There are also, naturally, plenty of leisure activities for skiers in Plagne Centre to enjoy during the daytime, including trips on snowmobiles, snow shoe hikes and tobogganing.
For relaxation there is a spa and cinema as well as several restaurants and bars.
