Overview of Champagny Ski Resort
Champagny-en-Vanoise ski resort is a traditional French mountain village that, over the past few decades, has found itself to be enviably located at the heart of the giant Paradiski region that has grown to join the ski areas of Les Arcs and La Plagne to form one of the world’s three biggest ski areas - Paradiski.
Champagny itself has a direct high speed cable car connection which lifts skiers some 800 vertical metres from the village in eight minutes to join the giant La Plagne ski area, from which it is possible, if you wish, quickly to reach Les Arcs via the Vanoise express double-decker cable-car connection across the valley.
The village of Champagny-en-Vanoise itself is of moderate size. New development has brought nice accommodation options, some with small spa facilities, and there are enough shops and restaurants to satisfy the needs of most holidaymakers for a week or two. It is proud of its heritage and you can take guided visits to the local farms or the church to emphasise that and there are some excellent food shops.
The slower pace of life here is also evident from the extensive cross-country ski facilities, some of the best in France, for which Champagny provides most of the Nordic tracks for the entire La Plagne resort.
There's a range of Champagny accommodation available but don't expect the massive choice one might find in neighbouring resorts. Powderbeds offer Champagny apartments including Les Alpages de Champagny which is great four star self catering choice
In Two Sentences, Champagny is a historic village that has become part of one of the world’s leading resorts. Champagny has the ambience and the character of a traditional French village but with a world class ski area on its doorstep.
