News – 2016/17

The news from this area this year mainly concerns resort villages some way from Champagny – take a look at the La Plagne page.

Summary

Champagny is a quiet, charming village in a pretty wooded setting on the back side of La Plagne’s ski area. There are several hotels and an excellent chalet-style apartment development, the Alpages de Champagny. It is at the opposite end of the slopes from the link to Les Arcs, but well placed for an outing by taxi or car to Courchevel. La Plagne’s extensive slopes form an intermediate’s paradise. There are sunny red runs back to the village too, though they are not really suited to timid intermediates and are prone to poor conditions – a potential drawback for many visitors.
