Champagny la Plagne is south-facing and at 1,250m is the first of the villages in la Plagne to lose the snow. There is a good and efficient telecabine out of the village that takes you to 1800m.
Although the snow disappears from the village quickly there is some great skiing up the mountain and Champagny can make a great base for a winter (or summer) holiday in the Alps.
