Aime Travel Guide: 28 reviews and 33 photos

Aime is a small village in the Savoie region of France. It is the closest town to the La Plagne ski resort, which is the reason why I went there in the first place so this page is mainly about La Plagne rather than Aime itself.

La Plagne is one of the best ski resorts in France. With a 730 hectare ski area, starting at 1250 metres, going up to 3250 metres on the Bellecote glacier, everybody can find runs adapted to his level. And if that were not enough, the domain offers huge possibilities for cross country or off piste skiing.

Going up and down

Due to its popularity, La Plagne has been consistently upgrading its facilities over the past years. Ski lifts are fast and well located so that you spend most of the time on the slopes.

Architects gone bonkers

The only bad thing about La Plagne is the architecture of the place. The buildings are really ugly. Nothing like the traditional French mountain chalets. It's all nasty 70's architecture. But then, you're only there at night so it doesn't matter that much.

Pros and Cons

    Am planning a trip to La Plagne at the end of March. Can't wait to carve the clopes.

    My whole family - some great skiers too - is coming from that neighbourhood (Le Dauphiné & La Savoie) - But I shouldn't advise everybody to go skiing off piste... Great photos & very good infos !
