WEsayThis may well be the most attractive of all the La Plagne villages, and it also provides a wealth of options for all levels of skier. It’s definitely a firm favourite of ours.
New for 2017/18
The long, slow Crozats quad chair on the Montchavin side of L’Arpette will be replaced by a smart new six-seater transporting 3,600 people per hour. And new public toilets will be constructed at the top. The Plan Bois beginner area above Montchavin-Les Coches will be improved. The existing draglift will be replaced by a new moving carpet lift and a new draglift roughly 500m long will be built to allow beginners to reach the Lac Noir gondola and Plan Bois chairlift to ride back down. The beginner section will be fitted with more snowmaking.
New for 2016/17
A new 6-seater chair lift, Les Envers, is being constructed out of the valley between Le Fornelet, the low peak above Montalbert, and Plagne Aime 2000, further improving access from Montalbert to the central resort areas. This is more or less in the same place as the Coqs chair, removed some years ago. Presumably the lift co has realised that sending everyone down the tricky blue run to La Roche wasn t such a great idea after all. The runs on the glacier will no longer be groomed, increasing the area s appeal for adventurous skiers (and meaning these slopes can be opened more quickly after a dump). A family fun run will open at the top of the St Jacues blue piste, in the Bellec�te sector. Chauffe Marcel will open slopeside above 1800 sounds a bit like a Folie Douce ( best sound system in the Alps ). A steeper than usual zipline will open, descending from Plagne Aime 2000 to Plagne Centre; special braking system at the bottom it says here! Work will commence on a major development of Plagne Aime 2000, to include a 5-star hotel and an aqua-leisure centre.
New for 2015/16
A 10-person gondola replaced the two old lifts out of Montalbert, out on a limb at the western extremity of the ski area, greatly speeding access to Plagne Centre and the rest of the area.
