Skiing in Paradiski

Skiing in Les Arcs and La Plagne

Here are some of the best places to ski and visit:

Tree-lined skiing around Peisey-Vallandry with wide open blues and reds. Try the Five fingers in Arc 2000 with very long black runs with heaps of moguls.

Champagny en Vanoise with its open pistes and great views across the valley and the Roche de Mio that leads to the La Plagne glacier.

Superb off-piste above Montalbert and great fun to be had in the forest amongst the tree-lined runs.

Arc 1600 has great tree-lined runs and the Malgovert run is great after a new snow fall. You can also ski one of the longest runs in the world from the top of the Les Arcs glacier at 3220m down to 1200m where you arrive at Villaroger.

Access to Les Arcs is quick and easy and you can choose your own level of difficulty to get there. The Blue runs take you into Arc 1800 or if you choose to take the red or black runs then you come to the mid station of the Trans Arc bubble car. The bubble car takes you into the next valley of Arc 2000, where you have a mountain of choice (pun intended!).

The hardest runs can be found just below the glacier (3226m) of the Aiguille rouge and is also the start of one of the longest runs in the world down to Villaroger (from 3226m to 1200m = 17 kms!).

Recommended for Good Skiiers

The best trip by far for good skiers with a guide is to ski the two glaciers. You ski the Bellecote Glacier in La plagne down to a free bus service which then takes you to Peisey. Here you access the Les Arcs ski area and head for the Aiguille Rouge glacier and ski behind it down to Villaroger. Without the skiing in between just the glaciers alone you would have skied over a 4000m descent off piste.

Les Arcs

We think Les Arcs is unique because when the snow falls the terrain changes completely. Off-piste is a must for the more experienced skier as there are superb places that are easy to find not far from the piste. Or, if you want to go Back-Country, we can recommend guides to take you skiing for 2 hours without using a lift.

The lift system is easy and well-linked to all the stations in Les Arcs (Arc 1600/1800/2000, Villaroger and Peisey/Vallandry).

In short - a fantastic world class resort which has something to please any level of skier or boarder alike!

  • Many thanks for a very enjoyable stay last week in Chalet Barthelemy. We both had an excellent Christmas. The chalet was as great as we remembered and the food was excellent in both taste and presentation and could not be faulted. Please pass on our feedback and thanks to Mike and Keisha.

  • We have just returned from a stay in Chalet Hermine our hosts were Cat and Clive. It was our first experience of staying in a catered chalet and it was truly fabulous we had such an amazing time. We had welcome drinks with our hosts on the first evening and Cat asked us all our names, the following morning she greeted us all individually at breakfast considering there was 11 of us I was really impressed!! The food was amazing and perfect after a full day of skiing, especially the lamb tagine this was awesome! Cat and Clive could not do enough to help and made us feel so welcome. I would definitely use this chalet again and would recommend your chalets, the location could not have been better and having such great hosts just made the experience really special.

  • We would like to say our stay with you last week was excellent. The hosts were lovely and really great cooks, they made us feel relaxed and at home. We transferred from Genève with Mountain Rescue who also gave a brilliant service. I would definitely recommend both you and them to friends travelling in the area in the future. In fact, I met an old colleague at Geneva airport and gave her your company name as they ski every year in that area. We wish you all the best with your company for the future and sure it will go well. (Sue Collinge, 4th Feb 2019)
  • We cannot praise your Chalet Chanterelle highly enough. Booking our stay and the changes we requested were made very smoothly. Your staff were welcoming and friendly as was the chalet atmosphere. Warm cosy, clean and comfortable, we were very impressed. The food was great and much appreciated after a long drive. The Chalet location is ideal and free parking too. Having enjoyed our stay so much we will most definitely be back. We can hand on heart highly recommend Chalet Chanterelle. Thanks Guys, in particular thanks to Chris who is a star.
