Ski touring

 

If downhill skiing is a widely practised discipline in La Plagne, ski touring also has its place in our Savoyard resort. With 4 events this winter, La Plagne is challenging you to be the sealskin king or queen. Straight climbs, downhill ski races, mixed formats, you will have 4 opportunities to perform, no less. 

Would you like to take up the challenge? Participate in at least three of the four races of the challenge to qualify for the overall ranking. Your performance in each race earns you points. It is the total of these points that determines the overall ranking and will reward the best skiers.
