⊕ “E-spots” come to France

Fun zones specially designed for electric mountain bikes with modules and raised bends, so you can have fun whether you’re going up or down! These E-Spots will be on or just next to the existing e-mountain bike trails.

 

The Fest’E-bike Plagne – August 15th, 2018

An event where everyone can find out about electric mountain biking.

The “E-balade”, one of the day’s key moments, is a free group ride supervised by professionals on a circuit that everyone will be able to enjoy (E-MTB & MTB) from Plagne Centre to the Dou du Praz. There will be an outdoor aperitif for participants on arrival.

Also on the programme: the impossible timed climb on the new E-spot on an E-MTB, presentation of the bike park, a dual slalom, a “Madison” team race, free tests of Haibike’s E-Bike range, an MTB trial show and other bike-related entertainment

 

Champagny en Vanoise swimming pool and spa

Built in 2002 and originally open in the summer only, the public pool in Champagny en Vanoise was covered in summer 2017 with a huge transparent retractable cover that moves on a rail system. It is the only one of its kind in a mountain resort and in this type of public swimming pool.

The pool also has a new 250m2 SPA / relaxation area with 2 sauna cabins, a Turkish bath, a spa with hot and cold pools and a huge relaxation room with “experience” showers and a treatment area. Minimum age for spa 14 yrs

Environmental concerns were taken into consideration in this project which uses a renewable energy system: heating using a heat pump and hot water via solar panels that benefit fully from Champagny en Vanoise’s south- facing exposure.

 

 

Contactless payment

From this summer, the tourist office will be offering contactless payment for purchases in the resort’s shops and from service providers using your ski card or a connected bracelet. In both summer and winter, regular or occasional visitors will have direct access to our best deals (reductions, private sales, free products and services) in the shops and will be rewarded for their loyalty (gifts, VIP access, special offers). You just have to download the app!

 

“Souvenance” sound trail

Take the new, easy trail in Champagny en Vanoise, to find out all about the listed valley of Champagny le Haut and Le Bois village by listening to recordings by the locals. These anecdotes and explanations, recorded in an audio guide, transport the visitor to a time long ago. Information booklet provided. Allow 1 hour
