Montchavin is considered by many to be the most beautiful resort in the domain, if not in France.
Montchavin itself is a charming resort with a variety of shops, bars, restaurants and a night club in a traffic free centre. It is a village with the convenience of being a tourist facility entirely dedicated to winter sports.
It is also now at the centre of one of the world’s largest ski areas, which was created in 2003 by joining the resorts of La Plagne, Peisey-Vallandry and Les Arcs, with the new superfast Vanoise Express, the world’s largest cable car, which joins the 2 resorts in a brief 4 minute journey.
This has created a ski domain with 425 kms of runs of incredible diversity, offering more than enough variety for all abilities of skiers from the complete beginner to the very experienced. A 17km long off piste route will also take you all the way back to Montchavin from the Bellecote glacier.
There are also 30kms of runs in the Montchavin ski area itself with the treelined runs back down the mountain also dependable due to the extensive snow cannon arrangement.
