1. La Plagne

Why go?

On the face of it, La Plagne doesn’t seem like a suitable destination for families. It’s a big and busy resort, but its assets are persuasive. It is essentially traffic-free; the nursery slopes are good, and in each village there is a free beginners’ lift. And grown-ups who want to do some serious skiing have the run of a ski area that is among the biggest in the world. There is always a lot going on, from bobsleigh rides to film shows.
