Go all the way up
Going up to Bellecote glacier is a must. The view is absolutely fantastic, the runs are tremendous but it is not for the faint hearted. If you are a beginner, don't take the last ski lift up, stop at the top of the "eggs" and go down the blue runs. If you are an intermediate skier, do take the last lift up and enjoy the (dark) red run. If you are an expert, go up and have fun on the two black runs. If you are a nutcase, go skiing off piste from the top. Whatever you do, don't forget to enjoy the view.
Mountains and cold white stuff
Aime is a small village in the Savoie region of France. It is the closest town to the La Plagne ski resort, which is the reason why I went there in the first place so this page is mainly about La Plagne rather than Aime itself.
La Plagne is one of the best ski resorts in France. With a 730 hectare ski area, starting at 1250 metres, going up to 3250 metres on the Bellecote glacier, everybody can find runs adapted to his level. And if that were not enough, the domain offers huge possibilities for cross country or off piste skiing.
"Going up and down"
Due to its popularity, La Plagne has been consistently upgrading its facilities over the past years. Ski lifts are fast and well located so that you spend most of the time on the slopes.
"Architects gone bonkers"
The only bad thing about La Plagne is the architecture of the place. The buildings are really ugly. Nothing like the traditional French mountain chalets. It's all nasty 70's architecture. But then, you're only there at night so it doesn't matter that much.
