Instructors & Lessons
When staying here, you’ll need to book your own ski or snowboard lessons. Tuition is strongly recommended for complete beginners and is always a good idea whatever your level to perfect your technique.

Packed full of amenities all accessible through indoor tunnels including grocery shops, bakery and delis, tabac, souvenir, clothing and equipment stores, ski hire, service and ski schools, internet café and more places to eat and drink than you can get through in a week, you would be forgiven for never venturing further than Plagne Centre, but if the urge takes you to get out and about to other villages it couldn’t be easier.
For food and drink your choices are endless, traditional, excellent Savoyarde menus at quaint La Metairie, modern La Refuge, elegant La Grolle or piste adjacent Le Chaudron. Quick and easy lunch stops for Crepes at Chez Marie, toasties and burgers at Le Croq-Neige or Scotty’s Bar for pizza, pasta, burgers and Panini’s. Grab late night munchies at Dominos (not that Dominos) pizzeria or the takeaway Panini bar located in the tunnels. Terraces and deck chairs abound all through the village centre and you cant go wrong for a beer or vin chaud at any of them, just pick a spot with a good view and relax for some piste watching.
