Have been heading to La Plagne now for a number of years and it seems to get better each year. Always great skiing and snow conditions. There is good early snow at the moment! La Plagne beats many of the other high priced resorts across the planet. When you are looking for typical Dutch hospitality go to the Dutch bar: après-skibar PlanJA.nl in La Plagne centre. It is on the road to Aime 2000. From far you can see the blue lights.

Montalbert is an excellent resort in the La Plagne area. It has a great snow record because the slopes are north facing and tree lined. The resuarants and the bars are really friendy and its brilliant for kids. Its a genuine 'French' resort which is Brit friendly. I have not met one person who said they did not have a great time. The skiing in La Plagne is great for any level, it’s a vast area, enough for anyone for a week unless you are the sort that likes to ski a new piste every day. the off piste was excellent, as steep as you want it. My favourite area was off the top of the Verdons Nord chair doing circuits to the bottom of the chairlift without having to go back to Plagne Ce

La Plagne: a victim of its own success? Went to La Plagne 16-23 Feb 08, half term week, stayed at the Maeva Lauze appartments in La Plagne 1800.The apartments are about a 150 metres walk downhill to a gentle piste that takes you to the chairlift out of the village. You need to really take another chairlift to get you into the ski area. What 1800 lacks in ski convenience it makes up for in looks, it is the most pleasant of the villages and actually feels like a village.It is not the spot for wild apres-ski in the evenings but has an excellent bar called La Mine with good beer and live music as well as showing live football. Two restaurants of note in 1800, the white wolf,La Lupo Blanco, serve

I've stayed in Laplagne at Montalbert 3 times in the past with a group of blokes. Montalbert is a very nice but quite dead village at the bottom of the ski area but we have always had a brilliant time (both skiing and drinking)there. I decided to go to Plagne Bellecote with my Wife and 2 (13 + 17 yrs) children for the Easter break. We stayed in Maeva Residence Bellecote. The apts were not the best we've had and are in need of updating. The resort itself is dead at night with not much going on however the skiing is absolutely SUPERB and we will be going back. The lift system is quick and comfortable and the queues at rush hour (which you get everywhere at Easter) moved quickly. The ski locker

The resort provides ample runs for a skier of my experience (3rd week away). The queues around Plagne Center and Bellecote are on the long side, but once you get away from the flash points, it's not hard to find a piste to yourself. The piste markings are pretty poor to say the least. Also how they decide the piste gradings is beyond me. The 'Tunnel' run is a pleasure because of the relatively steep start to a blue run putting most beginners off. There are easier reds! All of the Plagne resorts are connected by free buses which seem pretty efficient. Means you can sample the nightlife in other areas... I only got as far as a visit to Le Mine in Plagne 1800.
