Fast and efficient lifts connect the village up with the rest of the skiing area, making Montchavin an ideal choice for those wanting a holiday in cosy alpine surroundings combined with an extensive ski area, with snowmaking facilities helping to ensure snow coverage down to resort level.

La Plagne has a wide and varied ski area with many kilometres of easy blues combining with the more challenging skiing of the Roche de Mio and the surrounding off piste. The higher villages enjoy the convenience of doorstep skiing and the resort boasts a very extensive lift system giving exceptionally good access to the different areas. The Bellecôte gondola climbs up to Roche de Mio which is the gateway to the highest skiing in the resort, the Bellecôte glacier (3250m).

If you need more terrain during your Montchavin ski holiday, the village is ideally located for the Vanoise Express, giving easy access to the nearby Les Arcs ski area, which links with La Plagne to form the Paradiski domain. The Paradiski Unlimited pass gives access to over 425km of pistes, making it one of the largest ski areas in the world.
