A 12 day festival experience in La Plagne

Across the Alps as winter fades into Spring the mountain folk celebrate with traditions old and new alike. It’s a special time with sunshine, snow & the explosion of spring growth, you can start at the top of a mountain in winter & by the time you run out of snow it feels like summer.

One of the most interesting, exciting & diverse of these Alpine festivals has to be Subli’Cimes in La Plagne. It takes place over 12 days from the 5th to the 18th April. Before I attempt to explain this it’s fun to see what Google translate made of the French description on the La Plagne tourism website, “The recipe of Subli’Cimes: a bowl of pure air, a pinch of magic, an ounce of adrenaline, a trait of meditation, a hint of well-being, a zest of madness.”

Upon 6 summits of the La Plagne ski area you’ll find a range attractions and activities, they last for a full 12 days over Easter. It’s best to get around them on the pistes though it is possible to reach some of the peaks as a pedestrian. Subli’Cimes is a family friendly festival with attractions that appeal to all it’s a variety pack of things to do and see on your ski holiday in La Plagne.
