Skiing resorts aren’t just meant for skiing aficionados and many families love to plan trips to ski resorts, even if they are not interested in skiing. While some ski resorts cater only to skiers, many resorts, including La Plagne offer a host of other snow activities other than skiing.
Whether you’re not interested in skiing or you are just tired of hitting the slopes all day, the following are a few other snow activities you can try when you are in La Plagne:
La Plagne has the unique distinction of offering a magnificent bobsledding experience because they hosted the 1992 Olympic Games and had a bobsledding course built according to Olympic standards. You can actually go bobsledding in three different types of sleds, each offering a thrill like no other. Height and health restrictions do apply, so be sure to get evaluated beforehand.
Snow Shoeing Trails
La Plagne has a magical landscape that is only enhanced by snow. If you’re interested in trekking, you can opt for a snow shoe trekking experience with the help of a guide. There are also special sunset and sunrise trekking excursions that allow you to enjoy the magnificence of Mont. Blanc in the most magical natural light.
The Black Sheep Igloo
Feel like spending some time in an Igloo? Head to the Black Sheep Igloo that offers an authentic experience of being ensconced in an igloo. You can choose to either enjoy a dinner or spend the night in the igloo. For both occasions, advance booking is a necessity. Also, remember that furs and thermal clothing is a must in here as the temperature can drop.
Situated on the top of a glacier, namely the Plagne Bellecote, the Ice Grotto features various ice sculptures carved from the natural ice of the glacier. The interesting part is that as the glacier changes each year, the sculptures are also changed in accordance with this. This not only means you get to see something new every year; it also creates unique hues in the ice ranging from blue to green.
Want another way to explore the landscape? Tandem paragliding is also available at La Plagne. Starting from the Grande Rochette and extending over Three Valleys and Mount Blanc, the breathtaking views of these snow covered peaks are well worth the effort. Based on the company you avail these services with, you can also get film coverage of the flight you took
