Chalet Pearl is in snowsure La Plagne, which boasts more than 225kms of slopes, but it’s also the biggest resort of larger Paradiski – the second-largest ski area in the world.
The chalet is close to the express gondola (free parking) in Champagny, which takes eight minutes to the slopes.
La Plagne offers 70 per cent of pistes above 2,000m, a top lift on the glacier at 3,250m and pistes that stretch down to 1,250m. One of the many resort highlights is the 10km-long run from the Roche de Mio glacier to the village with more than 1,500m of difference in altitude.
The 600kms of slopes of Courchevel (part of the Three Valleys) are also just 20 minutes away. Wherever you choose to ski there is something for every level.
Keen skiers are spoilt for choice here. La Plagne alone has 225kms of runs for all levels and excellent off-piste, a glacier and a high-speed link to Les Arcs. It is high and snow-sure. Meanwhile, Courchevel, is deservedly known as the most impressive and glamorous resort of the Trois Vallees, with 150kms of varied pistes with easy links to both La Tania and Meribel.
There is enough skiing at both La Plagne and Courchevel to get a single-resort pass for either one. Or, splash out and buy a Paradiski or Trois Vallees pass to make the most of these fantastic ski areas.
Skiing is just one of many activities possible in Champagny. Escape the crowds and explore a pristine wilderness on a snowshoeing or ski touring expedition. Or, get a real workout at the cross-country park 10 mins away (pictured), at Champagny Le Haut, with 23kms and five graded 2 - 8kms tracks for all levels through a peaceful valley with awe-inspiring views. Le Haut is also the setting for Ice Experience (an ice-climbing tower), dog sledding, and a toboggan run.
