I will be happy to give you my tourist suggestions when you arrive. Here is a preview.
FOR SKIERS: Discovery of the LA PLAGNE and PARADISKI areas
In order to take full advantage of the immensity of the LA PLAGNE ski area and also discover the neighboring LES ARCS resort which is part of the PARADISKI area, we recommend the La Plagne ski pass, and 1 day Paradiski extension.
You will have access to Tout Plagne (Plagne Center; Aime 2000, Plagne Bellecôte; Belle Plagne; Plagne 1800; Plagne Villages et Plagne Soleil; Plagne Montalbert; Montchavin-les Coches; Champagny en Vanoise) enough to spend good days without returning to the same place + 1 day Paradiski (leave early in the morning to have time to really go and discover the slopes of Les Arcs)!
Ski days, from the chalet in Plagne 1800, we suggest:
D1- at plagne 1800: take the MELEZE and BERGERIE chairlift to immediately arrive at 2200 m, and start on the Plagne Bellecote side (and take a short tour in the "Pipe" at the bottom of the track), then roche de mio, then glacier.
D2- at plagne 1800: take the MELEZE and BERGERIE chairlift, and leave from the Plagne Bellecote side then go to the Montchavin side, les coches to then go up to Roche de Mio then glacier.
D3- in plagne 1800: take the MELEZE and BERGERIE chairlift and leave on the Plagne Center side, then grande rochette or the verdons, to go down again on the Plagne Center side (and a short ride in the snow park) or Champagny (via the war mountain , at least 30 ~ 40min of descent!).
D4- in plagne 1800: take the 1800 chairlift then go to the la roche and plagne montalbert pistes sector in the middle of the forest. Back on Aime, join the buttock shot "cretes" then go down on the plagne montalbert side, and the second time go down on the central plagne side!
D5- For the Paradiski day: meet on the Montchavin side by the slopes (~ 1h30 from the chalet), then take the vanoise express! D6- Your favorites!
