Montchavin la Plagne
Montchavin is the lowest of the la Plagne villages. It is north-facing and with more snow-making machines installed recently it should be possible to ski down to the village until the end of March or even into April.
Montchavin is based on an old farming village and as you ski down to one of several delightful restaurants you will ski through the village orchard: certainly a contrast to many more modern resorts.
The village has a couple of small supermarkets, a tabac and several other shops including a pharmacy.
Montchavin la Plagne – Ski & Snowboard Access: Montchavin rarely has any queues for the ski lifts out of the village; there are sometimes bottlenecks to get further up the mountain. There is a telecabine that gives access to les Coches and on up to the higher nursery slopes; in the last few years a new chairlift has been installed as well. There is a guide to the individual ski runs of la Plagne in the “Skiing in la Plagne” section of this website.
