La Plagne Turns 50 (18-Jul-11)

La Plagne celebrates its 50th birthday this winter....

La Plagne celebrates its 50th birthday this winter marking the start of an era in which all the ‘third generation’ or ‘newer’ ski resorts in the Alps built in the 1960s hit their big-5-0.

The big day itself is 21st December 2011 when the resort plans a celebratory evening of
entertainment and a live show.

The show will be a ‘home-grown’, grass roots tribute to the resort with a local cast made up of those who are involved in the running of the resort, from the ski schools, lift operating company, Club de Sport, and past and present ski champions. After the show a big firework display will take place on the Plagne Centre snow front.

A commemorative book and DVD will also be published, which retraces the story of la Plagne over the last 50 years and showcases photos and authentic documents retrieved from locals’ pasts and there will be an exhibition touring the 10 sites of la Plagne throughout the season.
