The huge Paradiski area encompasses three popular ski resorts: Les Arcs, Peisey-Vallandry and La Plagne. The entire linked up ski area was formed in 2003, when the impressive Vanoise Express gondola was created to link La Plagne and Peisey.
With 425km of piste to explore, Paradiski is a vast snowy playground that caters well for every level of skier or snowboarder with a plethora of green, blue, red and black runs. Indeed, there is far more terrain here than you could dream of exploring in just one week.
Whichever resort or village you stay in, access to the slopes is generally very quick. Much of the accommodation is either ski-in/ski-out, so you can step out your door and be straight onto the slopes, or located very close by.
There are plenty of excellent mountain restaurants dotting the slopes, often located conveniently at the side of a piste or nestled conveniently at the top of a chairlift. The scenery is spectacular too, with panoramic views from the Aiguille Rouge and Bellecote glaciers as well as some beautiful tree-lined slopes and mountainsides.
The resorts have a varied array of accommodation, with everything from cheap-and-cheerful apartments to more luxurious residences, a range of hotel styles and a large selection of chalets.
With versatile accommodation options, plenty of nursery slopes and multiple non-ski activities - La Plagne is a great choice for families.
If you like dancing on tables, cool bars and all-night clubs with high-profile DJs head to Les Arcs for the ultimate in après ski.
Its central location gives Peisey a fantastic selection of slopes to explore, whatever your level of expertise.
