La Plagne welcomes more than 2.5 million slope goers each year
Planning a winter skiing break for next winter? Look no further than La Plagne!
The French destination has been named as the most popular ski resort in the world.
A new industry report produced by Swiss business consultant Laurent Vanat reveals La Plagne has attracted the highest number of visitors over the last few ski seasons, welcoming more than 2.5 million skiers each year.
It should therefore feature near the top of the list of must-see holiday resorts for regular slope goers.
La Plagne is an unrivalled playground from 1250 metres to 3250 metres for all abilities, whether you're a cautious beginner or a seasoned pro, while freestylers will find many spots to express themselves.
It is part of the Paradiski ski area in the heart of the Alps, offering accommodation in high altitude resorts, villages or in the valley.
If you like to map out a route before you hit the slopes, then the resort's helicopter fly over is perfect for you. It takes you round the installations, villages and our ski area from the air, giving you a bird's eye of view of what to expect at every turn as you make your way down from the top of the mountains.
Anyone heading for a season at La Plagne, or any other resort for that matter, should purchase winter sports insurance before they jet off, just in case you lose your equipment or need medical care.
Earlier this year, research by the Association of British Travel Agents revealed that an alarming number of people are heading to the slopes without the protection of adequate winter sports insurance.
As many as 36% of the one million holidaymakers who head on winter sports breaks each year do so without purchasing cover.
