The ski area
Since 2003, La Plagne and the neighboring resort of les
Arcs have made up the ski area of Paradiski, thanks to the Vanoise Express.
The ski area stretches over 10 000 hectares, between 1250 m and 3250 m opposite
Mont-Blanc, from the apple orchards in the valley to the Bellecote Glacier and
covering several ski resorts : La Plagne, Les Arcs, Peisey-Vallandry,
Villaroger, Montchavin, Les Coches, Montalbert et Champagny en Vanoise.
Paradiski offers 425 km of marked pistes as well as a vast unmarked area and
famous off-piste runs (such as the north face of the Bellecote and the
Friolin). 70% of the ski area is above 2000 metres and the pistes’ orientation
is optimized for good snow throughout the season.
