Paradiski 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. Beginners are also welcomed with purpose built beginner zones, great snow conditions and reputable ski schools. 

Ski holidays in the Paradiski ski area 

Besides skiing, you'll find a range of unusual and original activities within the Paradiski ski area that'll make your holiday unforgettable. Visit Arc 2000 and you can fly across the mountains on the new Tyrolienne zipline - reaching up to speeds of 80mph if you're feeling daring enough. Or if you'd like something more chilled - quite literally - then head over to igloo village and experience the magical, frosty world of the ice grotto before heading to the ice bar. Over in La Plagne you can test your skills on the Funslope. Located in Plagne Bellecote, you can challenge friends and families and prove yourself through a range of bumps, jumps, turns and fun themed obstacles. And for added bonus, it is the longest funslope in the whole of Europe!
