Enchantment and activities that are unique in France on the menu! The winter season is officially open in La Plagne! The snow has fallen on the peaks of the ski area over the past few weeks and we have been longing to get our skis on again…
All you need to know about the ski area
Which is perfect timing! The Paradiski® area is opening on Saturday, 17 December and it’s the perfect moment to make the most of its 425 kilometres of pistes and 264 different runs before the end-of-year celebrations.
What’s new this winter? The “Riders Nation” snow park
A new name and a new location! The snow park that used to be in Belle Plagne has moved to the Dos Rond sector on the Montchavin-Les Coches side. A choice spot for progressing from green and blue lines to expert modules.
Accessibility remains the key word and for this reason "tutorial" signs have been installed to accompany and advise (first-time) participants. And if you prefer to watch the show, everything has been designed so that you can enjoy it up close!
A 700m spectator run
4 freestyle runs
A 650m boardercross
7 tutorial totems
