Ski La Plagne Self-Guided Day Tour
This route features the longer pistes to ski in La Plagne, mainly exploring Plagne Bellecote and Belle Plagne, to minimise lift faffing and maximise ski time. That’s what Ongosa Resort Guides are all about! You’ll also ski a couple of the resort’s very best runs like Levasette and Sources. Another benefit of this route is that it only requires a La Plagne Area lift pass, less pricey than the entire Paradiski resort.
This route consists of fairly gentle piste skiing, you may feel that your group will easily conquer this in less than a day. If this is the case – add a loop around Montchavin and Les Coches after lunch to get your extra miles in! Take a look at the route map below.
For more fantastic routes like this one, we can recommend ski guides in La Plagne and ski lessons in La Plagne, Les Arcs and throughout Paradiski, whose impeccable local knowledge means they’ll be able to craft a route that fits your ability and interests perfectly.

Start your ski by heading high out of La Plagne
Start by taking the GRAND ROCHETTE bubble lift out of Plagne Centre. We recommend you do this bright and early (beating ski schools to it) or wait a while, enjoy your pain au chocolat a little more leisurely, and catch the lift once the ski schools have left. Your warm-up piste is MIRA, a long and gentle blue. Bear right onto the TRIEUSE down to Plagne Bellecote.

Plagne Bellecote is next before your coffee stop in Champagny
Take the ROCHE DE MIO lift all the way to the top at 2,700m for a good photo opportunity, not to mention a glorious ski down LES LEVASETTE, one of our favourites in La Plagne and its ski area.
At the bottom of LES LAVASETTE , take a coffee break in Champagny then get on the new high-speed CARELLA chair lift.

Ski through Belle Plagne and head for lunch.
Sources is another all-time-favourite, a long red which curves down and joins the blue BELLE PLAGNE. There’s options here, but either way, take the ARPETTE out of Bellcote.
At the top, drop over the other side underneath the SALLA chair lift and take the MONT BLANC or DOS ROND down to the top of the PIERRE BLANCHES lift. Be careful not to go too far because you’ll appreciate a stop at Les Pierre Blanches restaurant. It has good-value mountain food, and the sun terrace is a winner especially when there’s live music on.
Long runs back towards La Plagne in the afternoon
Take the DOS ROND chair followed by the SALA. Ski ST JACQUES, it’s a lovely long run that drops down into Plagne Bellecote where you’ll need to take the COLOSSES up the other side of the mountain.
Turn right as you get off the lift and ski down to the short CHEVERETTE chair. BRIDGE will take you back to Plagne Centre. If you’re keen to carry on skiing – a couple of laps of COLORADO offer four or five options that will still bring you back into the town centre.
For ski-to-door après we suggest Scotty’s where there’s live music Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and plenty of seasonnaires which must mean it’s fun. Igloo Igloo offers an alternative to the Alpine décor of most après bars: low domed ceilings and glossy white walls give a good impression of an actual Igloo, all with the perks of serving beer!
