Paradiski ski area is becoming even more popular 10 years on
17th February 2017
Its been over a decade since the Vanoise Express cable car opened and connected two of our most popular ski areas in France on one ski pass. The Paradiski ski area is as popular as ever. In fact, La Plagne overtook Val d’Isere as our most popular ski resort in the 2015/16 ski season for the very first time in our 22-year history.
It’s over a decade since the Vanoise Express opened
La Plagne and Les Arcs are both big enough in their own right for a good weeks skiing holiday, but combined they make a mega ski resort offering 425km of pistes that suit every level of skier from advanced and expert skiers to the first time skier.
The ski range is impressive with over 2,000m of vertical drop, the lowest ski runs at 1200m and the highest at a chilly 3,250m, most of the runs above 2,000m which makes the Paradiski area one of the best snow sure ski areas in Europe.
If you are planning on booking your ski holiday through Skiline.co.uk the only problem is choosing where to stay. We feature nearly all of the satellite villages you would want to choose from, including the popular ski in ski out village of Arcs 1950 with its smart self-catered apartments. Catered ski chalets and chalet hotels in Plan-Peisey and Vallandry in the Les Arcs side of the ski area.
Great signage so you don’t have to keep looking at your piste map
In the La Plagne side, the choices are even greater! The smaller lower villages of Montchavin and Les Coches has several great chalets. So too does the village of Montalbert.
