La Plagne is known for its down-to-earth clientele and untracked pow fields i.e. a rider’s idea of heaven. Alpoholics was set up by Charlie Bulbrook who quit his job with a high-end Swiss chalet company to open his own cheaper, more fun version in La Plagne. It’s details like the boot-drying room, games consoles and hot tub for post-shred downtime that make Alpoholics a rad place to stay. Plus the best part is they’re the only official test centre for Bataleon boards. So you can rip around on the latest Triple Base Tech stick, as well as bagging a discount from rad UK snow shop SS20.
