Environment and Leisure

Champagny-en-Vanoise is a charming authentic savoyard village connected to the ski resorts of La Plagne and Les Arcs (Paradiski).

Champagny is divided into two villages:
Champagny-resort lies at 1250m altitude, the village center, where are located shops and commerces.
This is the best location for downhill skiing, a cablecar  takes skiers to the southern slopes of la Plagne (alt. 2000m à 3000m) in just 8 mins.
Three miles above, at 1450 m altitude, lies the vallon of Champagny Le Haut.
Le vallon lies on the edges of the vanoise national park. This is the place for nordic skiing with unparallelled opportunities for cross-country skiing, sledding, snow shoeing,walking, and ice-climbing in the most stunning of environments.

My favorite ballads:
In winter, I like to go and walk on snowshoes to Chatelard, a small hamlet located just above the chalet. In return, 20 minutes in the sauna to warm up and relax, it’s pure happiness!
For skiing, I like to go towards Aime la Plagne, the ski can be very interesting and there are never a lot of people, even in high season. From Champagny, take the new chairlift “Verdons South”, get off at Plagne Centre to take the chairlift “Bécoin”. At the top, many very nice options, easy and difficult ski, beautiful and long tracks, interesting hallways. You can go down to Montalbert where you will find nice restaurants on the slopes.
But the real pleasure for me is to go cross-country skiing (skating) in Champagny-le-Haut.
“22 kms of marked and maintained ski runs for those who love all types of cross country skiing in Champagny le haut area.”
A splendid site to find solitude and silence.
After a little training, you must go to the Laisonnay under the waterfall. It’s very beautiful!
Let’s go skiing, but also on foot or snowshoes.
