Though it is one of the three resorts that make up the massive Paradiski ski area, La Plagne stands on it's own as a truly complete mountain experience.
The numbers are impressive: La Plagne covers 100km/sq, has 135 marked runs equaling 225km in length, holds untold kilometers of off-piste terrain, boasts a vertical drop of 2000m, features a slopestyle park, a halfpipe, and three ski/board cross tracks, and connects eleven separate villages with it's network of trails and lifts.
La Plagne has a long history with FIS Freestyle, having hosted World Cup events regularly since 1987, in nearly every event that has ever fallen under the Freestyle umbrella. Having also hosted the sliding events for the nearby Albertville Winter Olympics in 1992, La Plagne has proven itself over several decades to be a world-class resort capable showcasing winter sport at the highest level.
