This week has seen the freeze levels drop to below 1000m which means the ground is starting to freeze and with the first real snowfalls this should create a stable base for the season to come.


The resort is opening on the weekend of the 16th December this year and preperations have already begun. There are new lifts including a high speed 6 man chair at Crozats in Les Coches giving super fast access to the La Plagne ski area from Les Coches. There is also the new Envers lift in Montalbert giving much better acces to the rest of La Plagne.

We also have a new restaurant in Montalbert being opened by renowned Michelin starred chef Phil Howard, we would like to wish him every success with his new venture and will be reporting back soon after we have had a chance to sample his delights!

To celebrate the start of a new season Ice and Fire have decided to have start of season sale with all chalets at £299 per person fully catered and no single supplement for all you solo skiers. This offer is for the first week of the season 16th December to 23rd December.

10 Great Reasons to Book a Christmas Ski Holiday to La Plagne With Ice and Fire.

1) You can't get more festive and Christmassy than an Alpine ski resort in DecemberChristmas bauble

 The festive season in the snowy Alps is always magical and every year there is some sort of celebration in resort to mark the occasion. 

Christmas concerts, festive markets and live music throughout town as the resort gears up for Christmas.

Christmas Eve is usually marked with street parades, a carol concert outside the Tourist Office and a rather theatrical visit from Father Christmas.  Christmas Masses are held all evening at the Church in the centre of town.

The best part of spending Christmas in La Plagne is being able to ski on Christmas day - yes the ski lifts are open as normal and you'll be sure to see a few skiing Santa's!

2) You don’t have to do the cooking or the washing up

Staying in one of our luxury Chalets where our team of experience chefs and Hosts will be there to look after you. In the evening, they will begin with a champagne and canapes reception followed by a mouth-watering Christmas dinner, you will begin with a delicious light starter followed by turkey and all the trimmings for main course. And, if you've still got room, then finish with a choice of traditional Christmas pudding or a lighter dessert. Dinner is followed by freshly brewed coffee served in the lounge by the log fire. AND... Skiing / Snowboarding burns off so many calories it's almost guilt-free. Winner winner turkey dinner! And no washing up.

3) You don’t have to put up the decoration

There are decorations throughout the resort and a huge, snowy Christmas tree in the pedestrian centre. During the Christmas week, Les Coches organizes a number of special events including carols, mulled wine evenings and usually a visit from "pere noel".

In Plagne Village and Plagne 1800 there are Christmas decorations and a fun and festive atmosphere, there is a Christmas market in Plagne Centre.

Even we Ice and Fire get into the festive spirit too and there will be a tree and decorations in your chalet when you arrive.

4) Invite all the family along

You don’t have to be a skier to enjoy Christmas in the alps, there are lots of things to do for all the family weather you’re a skier or a non skier.

5) Your Christmas morning will be stress free

You can relax and wake up on Christmas morning to a Buckfizz welcome with Christmas songs playing, while you open your presents round the tree, then enjoy a lovely Christmas breakfast, whilst smelling those freshly baked Mince pies cooking in the oven ready for your afternoon tea.

6) Lots of things to do in December in resort

On Christmas day skiing runs as normal with all of the ski lifts, ski schools, shops, childcare services and mountain restaurants open as normal, albeit with a festive atmosphere in the air! La Plagne itself is very welcoming too, and the churches are open to visitors both for midnight mass and during Christmas day.

8) It's easy to get to La Plagne

With lots of additional flights available in the winter season, snow trains, great coach and airport transfer companies to help you, there's no excuse to stay at home, come here instead!
