“La Plagne has now joined forces with neighbouring Les Arcs to form Paradiski, a ski area of mammoth proportions. Some 425km of groomed runs served by 141 lifts make it one of the most extensive circuits in the world. The double-decker Vanoise Express cable-car now spans the Ponturin gorge between the two resorts. However, many would argue that La Plagne’s own 225km of piste, together with some of the most challenging off-piste powder-skiing in the whole of the Tarentaise valley, was already enough.”
Sunday night at the London Palladium was the venue of amateur plate spinners, La Plagne was witness to Bodie & Doyle. The Awesome Foursome were asked to join a bar full of Dutch Skiers in their game of secret love notes pinned to a board - needless to say, not only were the Dutch, but also every other nationality in the bar converted to pegging instead.We visited as they were building the Vanoise Express so we didn't ski Les Arcs and we had horrendous queues as the lift operators were on strike so expect it to be better than our star rating.
