The Paradiski Area
Whether youre a beginner or advanced skier or boarder, the Paradiski offers something for everyone 425kms of piste, 2 glaciers, 2 snowparks, boarder crosses, half-pipes, gentle tree-lined forest runs and challenging blacks, not to mention heaps of off-piste including the infamous North Face of Bellecote. And if thats not enough for you, your complimentary lift pass also gives you some days skiing in Espace Killy or the 3 Valleys.
Our chalets are both bang in the middle of the Paradiski at opposite ends of the Vanoise Express, the impressive cable car that links La Plagne and Les Arcs, meaning that you have easy and quick access to the whole area.
