La Plagne

La plagne 

La Plagne is a French ski area in the alpine valley of the Tarentaise. Since 2003, La Plagne and the neighbouring resort of Les Arcs form Paradiski's ski area. It is currently owned by Compagnie des Alpes.
La Plagne lies at altitudes between 3,250 metres (on the Glacier de la Chiaupe near the top of Bellecôte) and 1,250 m (in the village of Montchavin). La Plagne has 100 km2 of ski area spread across four communes (Aime, Bellentre, Champagny-en-Vanoise and Mâcot-La Plagne). La Plagne has 225 kilometres of slopes , and a large off piste skiing area including Bellecôte's North Face. La Plagne is a modern ski resort with 2 cable-cars: the Telemetro, linking Plagne Centre and Aime-La Plagne and the Vanoise Express and 38 drag lifts. A bobsleigh, luge, and skeleton track was built in La Plagne for the 1992 Winter Olympics held in nearby Albertville.
  La Plagne was created in 1961, as with many resorts in the Alps, to save the valleys from becoming deserted. The agriculture and mining industries were in crisis, which led to young people leaving the valley in search of work. In 1960, four towns (Aime, Bellentre, Longefoy and Macôt) created an association to defend their interests, with an initiative of Dr. Borrionne, mayor of Aime. On 24 December 1961, La Plagne opened, with its two drag lifts and its four slopes. Emile Allais, great ski-champion, has helped La Plagne to grow. Immediately, La Plagne generated a great deal of success, and in 1966, Guy Lux, a French TV, presented "Interneiges", a live competition between two French resorts.
