Snowparks in La Plagne
La Plagne is another great place to go if you are a freestyle skier or snowboarder. It has a huge snowpark that sits above Plagne centre and under the Funicular. You can reach it from top of the Colorado lift if you're coming from Plagne centre or from the top of the Blanchets if you're coming from Plagne Bellecote.
La Plagne has a whopping 1km long snowpark known as the 7 Cube which caters for people of all abilities. The park is shaped with skiers in mind as La Plagne has a big freestyle ski scene but that’s not to stop the snowboarders having a go too. You will find different sized jumps graded in the same way as the pistes - Green, Blue, Red and Black. As you can imagine, these are named according to their level of difficulty and diversity of their obstacles with green being the easiest and black being the hardest - which is big!
Once the jumps are out of the way the park splits in two and each branch has a selection of rails and boxes and one also has a wall ride. Unfortunately, there is no drag lift for the park so you must use the Colorado chairlift from Plagne Centre. There are often small competitions in the park for everyone to join in and have a go, mostly on a Friday afternoon. There is also a picnic area where you can eat your lunch whilst watching people throw themselves off the jumps or you can just listen to the music in the sun.
Down in Plagne Bellecôte there is a half-pipe which is also open to all. There is a chairlift called the Blanchets right next to the pipe which can be used to access it.
You can buy a "Pass Park" which will give you access to the ‘7 Cube’, the boardercross at Belle Plagne and the halfpipe at Plagne Bellecôte. Between the three, you can expect to find a variety of rails, tables and jumps to keep you busy all day! Take a look at this year's ski pass prices for more information.
