7.00AM: early birds & first tracks
Sunrise lovers & virgin snow amateurs meet up every Wednesday morning in Montalbert, Plagne Bellecôte (Arpette chairlift) or at Funiplagne Grande Rochette. As soon as the sun rises behind the crests, ski lifts open just for first tracks lovers – early skiers will head to mountain tops and, first things first, enjoy a solid Savoyard breakfast served in a mountain restaurant. The morning highlight is undoubtedly the pure joy of riding pristine, whitewashed, sleek and immaculate slopes as they await the happy few. Ride the slopes almost in private and enjoy the freshest snow: there is no better way to start the holidays. Are you in?
9.30AM: Funslope family meeting
La Plagne is home to the longest Funslope in Europe, starting on the top of Arpette chairlift – Plagne Bellecôte. Make yourself comfortable on this joyful ski slope while warming up – the Funslope is accessible to all skiers while mixing turns, tunnels and kicks for more excitement. Beware with your need for speed as the policeman figure will watch your speed: will you get caught by his camera?
11.00AM: heading to the freestyle zone
Les Blanchets chairlift will take you up to the snowpark and bordercross area. Freestyle and adrenaline lovers are now ready to throw their best show.

These two inspirational champions may give you the extra kick to try some tricks! Bring it on!
And because practice makes perfect, in case you would like to push your freestyle training a little further – or simply have extra fun, try the Big Air Bag, located just next to the freestyle area: before you move back to the ‘regular’ slopes and enjoy la Plagne’s crispy snow, this fun activity is the perfect combo to polish your freshest ski or snowboard tricks and jumps.
