Nestled in the Vanoise massif, in Savoie, the resort of La Plagne comprises eleven village resorts spread over a total area of over 100 km between 1250 m and 3250 m altitude.
In 1961, an ambitious project was launched with the aim of reviving the local economy and combating desertification. The very first resort, Plagne-Centre, opens its doors with four runs and two ski lifts. The success was dazzling and the resort gained notoriety with the programme "Interneiges" hosted by Guy Lux in 1966. 28 years later, in 1992, La Plagne hosted the luge and bobsleigh event of the Albertville Winter Olympic Games.
With the opening in 2003 of one of the fastest cableways in the world, the Vanoise Express, which joins the La Plagne and Les Arcs resorts, the two resorts join to form the Paradiski domain which covers an area of 1000 ha in the four villages of Aime, Bellentre, Champagny-en-Vanoise and Mâcot-la-Plagne.
Today, the resorts of Paradiski make the happiness of the amateurs of winter sports with 425 km of skiable tracks.
