The first time we looked at the piste map, we thought it would be impossible to ski the Paradiski area in a day. We started in Les Arcs, which is already huge.
From the Aiguille Rouge, there were snowy peaks as far as the eye could see and we said: “Maybe we’ll get that far tomorrow… and we did get there, even with the children!
We went the whole day without ever passing the same place twice, except for taking the Vanoise Express both ways, of course, but that’s worth it for the view alone!
After that, we wanted to try something different. Our son loves the snow park and he had a great time. I tried a few things, but my idea of skiing is to go out freeriding on the mountain, which we also did together. Amazing!
Skiing in Arc 1950 means having access to the whole of Paradiski, the world’s second largest ski area: three ski resorts (Les Arcs, Peisey-Vallandry and La Plagne) linked by one of Europe’s largest cable cars: the Vanoise Express.
It’s a huge playground at the entrance to the Vanoise National Park – a protected area of 53 000 hectares – with modern infrastructures, fast, comfortable lifts and a variety of areas for all styles and levels, whether you choose to play in Les Arcs, La Plagne or Peisey-Vallandry…
For all levels from beginner skiers to experienced riders, the Paradiski pass offers well-groomed wide runs or ungroomed Natur’ itineraries, forests that are sheltered from bad weather, fun areas, snow parks and first tracks…
There’s room for everyone in Paradiski, so go and make your own tracks!
