Paradiski Ski Area

Two large and established ski resorts to create one giant playground for all abilities.

Set high in the Tarantaise region of the French Alps, the combined slopes of Les Arcs and La Plagne create one of the largest ski areas in the world. Totalling over 425km of pistes plus untold acres of off piste to explore, the Paradiski area is a real crowd pleaser. Intermediates will flourish here, enjoying long, wide open runs plus a fast and efficient lift system. Advanced skiers have their pick of off piste and nature runs plus one of the longest runs in the Alps, a 7km challenging black and red run from the top of the Aiguille Rouge at 3,226m Les Arcs to 1,200m in Villaroger. Beginners are also welcomed with purpose built beginner zones, great snow conditions and reputable ski schools. Whichever side you choose to stay on, the trip abroad the unique double decker Vanoise Express cable car between the areas is a spectacular ride and there are 17 villages to try and visit to tick off in a week's stay.

A playful roller coaster of open runs and connected villages, La Plagne makes the most of all the terrain on offer. Individuals and families can stay in four of the villages, Plagne Soleil and Plagne Villages are modern but perfectly placed on the piste above Plagne Centre and Belle Plagne has a traffic free village centre and attractive buildings made of local stone and wood.

Arc 1800 is the largest centre and also home of the Mille8 complex with pool and ski play areas. It's also the closest centre to the Vanoise Express. Arc 1950 has a piste running through the middle and is inspired by the resort of Whistler and contains a development of high quality apartments, whilst traffic free Arc 2000 is home to a selection of catered chalets.

What We say
  • The Igloo Village in Les Arcs is an alternative way to enjoy an after dark Savoyard dinner.

  • The Olympic bobsleigh in La Plagne is a must for thrillseekers and Olympic lovers!

  • The Roche de Mio often offers uncrowded pistes and spectacular views of the surrounding mountain ranges.

What You say
  • It is rare when a holiday company exceeds expectations, yet that is exactly what happened here. The staff and resort were so flexible to our children's needs, ourselves and the weather conditions. The ski shop went of their way to be helpful. Truly excellent experience, thank you all.

  • The Reps at the airport, on the coach and in resort were very helpful. We loved the resort, it was exactly what we wanted. The skiing was fantastic.
