Paradiski: when three ski resorts make the world’s second largest ski area

Take full advantage of your ski holidays in les arcs resort

For our traditional skiing holidays, we decide to try Les Arcs skiing area thanks to the advice of friends who have already been to this resort twice for great skiing session.

The first time we looked at the piste map, we thought it would be impossible to ski the Paradiski area in a day beacause of its length. We started in the resort of 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 with our skis and snowboard, even with the children!

We skied 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 in Les Arcs is to go out freeriding on the mountain, which we also did together.

Les Arcs is an amazing place to stay and to ski!

An ever-developing ski area.

The Vallée de l’Arc, a wide valley with a majestic view of Mont Blanc, is a sector of the ski area that everyone can enjoy and that is being improved every year. After modernising the Pré St Esprit chairlift which passes right over the Village, then Comborcière chairlift which has been upgraded to a detachable 4-seat chair that is twice as fast and comfortable, the runs are also being given a makeover.

The new “Le Secret” run in the hollow of a pretty little valley out of sight, is now one of the slopes that you really have to try over the winter!

Even if the scenery of the Les Arcs / Paradiski area will encourage you to forget your phone for a while, you won’t be completely disconnected on the ski slopes. There are 60 free WIFI hot spots for an even richer experience and the Yuge app is there to help you get any information you need on conditions in the ski area.


The Les Arcs ski area is bursting with activities and secrets that you can discover during your ski holiday. Of course, the first thing you will want to do is ski on the most beautiful runs in Savoie, but you should know that Paradiski is a vast playground where you don’t always need skis to have fun.

The resort, nestled in the heart of the Alps, has ensured that you can find all you need on your smartphone, using the Paradiski Yuge application, which you should download right now! All kinds of activities await you in Les Arcs, with dog sled rides and much more.
