Do you consider yourself an accomplished skier? Looking for a new winter sport to try to keep things interesting? Then cross-country skiing might be the perfect activity for you. La Plagne is a lovely resort in the Tarentaise’s alpine valley, and a popular destination for cross-country skiers because of its well-maintained and specialised trails. You’ll be free to cruise the pistes and discover the region’s natural beauty once you’ve settled into a magnificent La Plagne Chalet.
Vallée de Bellecôte is a great place for adventurers.
To go to the Valle de Bellecôte, you’ll need a car, but it’s well worth it. It’s certainly worth organising an afternoon excursion to this lovely valley if you’re bringing your own vehicle or have the opportunity to hire one. The Valle de Bellecôte, which connects La Plagne with Les Arcs, is ideal cross-country skiing terrain. Drive to Peisey-Nancroix for the greatest experience, where you’ll find plenty of ski routes, equipment rental, and the all-important clubhouse and café. Just make sure to check the weather forecast before heading out, as the area is known for avalanches!
Montchavin is the place to go if you want to be sure you’ll get snow.
There’s no better place to go cross-country skiing than Montchavin if you want a guaranteed blanket of pristine snow cover. The course is located at a height of roughly 2000 metres, which is ideal for snow coverage. The Champagny track, La Plagne’s longest and most difficult trek, is located here. The trail winds its way around the peak, providing breathtaking vistas. You’ll be exhausted after your adventure, but you’ll just be a short distance from your comfortable La Plagne Chalet, where you can sit back, relax, and reminisce about the day’s excitement.
