Chalet Como Suite, Summit View
Each suite, with three, four or six bedrooms is entirely independent with its own living and dining areas and dedicated chalet host. Many of the bedrooms have additional full size secluded beds for families or smaller groups wishing to share a room.
The decor is tastefully sophisticated, with a boutique-hotel vibe thanks to the luxurious soft furnishings, original works of art, solid oak floors, recessed flat screens and BOSE audio systems. All suites have balconies overlooking the spectacular Grand Rochette mountain and the Front de Neige slopes. A private lift takes you down to the piste level, ski school and equipment hire.
For those wishing to treat themselves, then the extravagant space of the penthouse Lugano Suite will be for you, where you can also upgrade to Platinum service for the ultimate ski indulgence.

La Plagne Resort Info
La Plagne skiing
Boasting some superb scenery, particularly from the top of the 3250m Bellecote glacier (which provides summer skiing possibilities) skiing in La Plagne is a true pleasure. Now lift linked with Les Arcs, the resutling "paradiski" area is one of the largest in the world. La Plagne offers skiing for all; beginners and intermediates are very well served while advanced skiers and boarders have lots of off-piste, but fewer truly testing black runs. Boarders and freestyle skiers have the choice of a 2.5 hectare snow park, a half pipe, and a fun park to whet their appetites.
La Plagne ski resort
La Plagne is made up of 10 'villages', most of which have that purpose built 1960s feel. However, on the upside, this does provide loads of ski in ski out accommodation making La Plagne great for family ski holidays. Each village is self-sufficient with shops, bars and restaurants, although the variety of off-snow activities can be limited. Chambery is the nearest airport (an hour and 45 minutes away), while the ski train goes to Aime, 30 minutes away. All of La Plagne's 'villages' are superbly linked, with a lift system computer-rated as the best in the world.
Top Tip: stay in gorgeous Champagny-en-Vanoise for the traditional Alpine thing and a rapid gondola link into the full La Plagne lift system - plus the chance to ski for a day in nearby Courchevel

The big news in France is that many resorts will open for snowsports this weekend – either for weekend skiing or for the season fully.
Alpe d’Huez (22/150cm) is scheduled to open for the season on Friday 6th December.
Isola 2000 (55cm/60cm) was open for a pre-opening ski on Sunday 1st December but will open for the season daily from 7th December.

European Weather Outlook
The weather over the weekend and into next weekend is forecast to remain sunny for the majority of European skiing destinations. The good news is that mid-mountain temperatures should remain around freezing over the weekend, although it is set to get mild again next week.
Strong winds have affected the Scottish resorts this week, with some damage reported at Nevis Range. Some fresh snow could land over the weekend.
Fresh snow has already been reported in Norway and Sweden too, and more snow could land over the weekend.
