Ski sophrology, in contact with the trees
Karine, a ski instructor and sophrologist offers a fresh approach to learning to ski, more conscious of nature, the elements and oneself. This synergy brings out your full potential of positive resources, such as self-confidence, strength, concentration, determination, wellbeing and physical and mental strength. At the end of the day, Karine proposes a “Serenity” afternoon tea in an altitude restaurant exploring the virtues and benefits of larches and firs. You can ski back down or non-skiers can take the gondola.

Individual lesson 1½ h from 75€, or group lessons; Tea: 25€/pers
Le Brix beer bar
With a choice of 8 draught beers and 100 or so bottled beers from 20 countries, the list of tastes and flavours turns each beer into a journey. If 80% of the list is Belgian, you can also be tempted by a long-haul flight to Tahiti, Argentina or even China! With a picture window that overlooks the bottom of the ski slopes and a long metallic bar, the experience comes with a pub-style intimate atmosphere.
Open 3.00 pm to midnight
Official Snooc resort
La Plagne is the first resort to propose a specific Snooc run. This French invention of a ski/sled hybrid can be used as an alternative to a toboggan for riding down the 1½ km Colorado Park run!
Adapted for both skiers and non-skiers, it is easy to get started on, rapid to learn to control, and offers similar sensations to a kart. It can also be used on the ski runs.

La Plagne is making it easier for you to book your holiday with a new website and on-line travel agency that is a first in the mountains.
La Plagne, the world’s no.1 resort, is now offering an on-line travel agency.
The tourist office and the ski area are working with Orchestra to offer packages that combine:
- Transport (train & plane) & transfers
- Ski lessons
- Equipment rental
The aim is quite clear: to offer visitors the best experience possible, from their reservation through to their holiday. Like with Accor, C Discount Voyages or Lastminute.com, you can reserve each element of your holiday on a single website, even the transport: an exclusive for a mountain resort!
The “à la carte” choices are legion, allowing holidaymakers to put together a personalised package. As well as reserving their accommodation, they will be able to reserve train tickets or a bobsleigh descent, unique in La Plagne, all on the same platform and in just a few clicks.
La Plagne is also working on a new website. More than just a new page, it will be a real source of inspiration for future holidaymakers and a practical tool for organising a holiday. The website will be going live over the autumn and marks a new chapter in La Plagne’s objectives, by virtually grouping the resort’s 12 sites. Moustique agency is accompanying the resort in this adventure. See you on www.la-plagne.com.
