La Plagne - jobs and seasons
La Plagne is a great resort to work in and visit. The terrain is varied and there is plenty of off piste that's easy to get at. Not least the North Face of the Bellcote glacier. Check with the Pisteurs beforehand, or get a guide, as there have been some pretty bad avalanches in recent years.
If the piste is more your thing, there is literally miles of wide blue runs, tree runs down to Montchavin and Les Coches, and steep reds and blacks off the Grande Rochette near Plagne Centre. A lot of the resort faces Northish as well so you get decent snow until late in the day. It's also quite a high ski area at 1970m (going over 3000m on the Bellecote glacier).
There are lots of tour operators in La Plagne and there is usually transfer repping work to be picked up if you go there on spec. The British usuals like Crystal, Inghams and Ski World operate in the main resorts. Down in the lower stations like Les Coches a few Dutch outfits run their own chalets.
The USPCA is located in Plagne 1800 and employs lots of people to look after school and family groups.
Pubs, cafés and clubs in La Plagne La Plagne is split into a few different villages (four or five main ones really), each with it's own bars and things to do. Try the Cooleur café in Plagne 1800, or for a cheesy French evening, one of the clubs in Bellecote. La Plagne is not exactly Blackpool, and for night life you would probably be better in Val D'Isere, but it is a friendly place and all the villages are linked up with a bus that runs till midnight.
There is also a Mark Warner Hotel that sells Guiness, which is always a bonus.
