Made up of hamlets with traditional buildings in wood and stone, Champagny-en-Vanoise became a small winter sports resort in 1971. You will love the charm of the village, its Baroque church and the little streets with a chapel and oratories. Here, the locals really know how to welcome guests. Popular with families the resort has all the services and amenities for a great holiday.
The majestic valley of Champagny le Haut is a listed natural site and home to a Nordic domain which offers a range of activities to be enjoyed in an exceptional setting: 24 km of cross-country ski trails, sledging, snowshoeing and walking trails, ice climbing, dog sledding, ski joëring...

The gondola lift which connects to the La Plagne and Paradiski ski area (La Plagne + Les Arcs), reaches an altitude of 1970m, guaranteeing good snow cover. At the top, the chairlifts serve several green and blue runs, ideal for beginners. Experienced skiers can reach the village by the red piste of Le Bois, which runs through the forest, or you can try the mythical Mont de la Guerre piste, which attracts many skiers.
At an altitude of 1200m on the southern slope, it benefits from optimal sunshine. For young skiers, the resort has two kindergartens.
