“Combe Bénite” downhill ski race, January 10, 2021
Started by downhill skiers and mountain professionals from the village of Granier and La Plagne, this new race takes place on the Versant du Soleil. The majestic scenery of Combe Bénite massif brings together popular experienced athletes over a course with 1600 to 1900 m of elevation gain. It’s the perfect opportunity to experience on skis the village’s conviviality and the beauty of the high mountain pastures, which has made the Combe Bénite summer trail race such a success over the past 10 years.
Going on an expedition to the Far North
Maybe it was Jack London who inspired Sébastien. It’s certainly true that the spirit of adventure inhabits the programme of this “expedition”. It all starts in Montchavin, meeting up at the end of the afternoon. Then the group heads off towards the campsite on snowshoes. Everyone settles into their apartment… well, their igloo in fact, just like the ones dug out by the Alpine hunters! An aperitif in the camp then a mountain dinner to warm you up, it looks like it will be a beautiful night out in the elements. The next day, there is breakfast and a morning snowshoe walk, the perfect way to start the day!

A life-sized mine from olden times
Before the development of winter sports with our “white gold”, silver-lead mining was the region’s economic lifeblood. Its history is staged at the Maison du Patrimoine in Plagne Centre with a new immersive experience. You almost believe you are there! The gallery is reconstituted with a real wagon on rails, a miner working with his hammer drill and even a dummy detonator to simulate an explosion!
