Paradiski ski holidays Skiing & snowboarding around the Paradiski ski resorts
Set within the beautiful Tarentaise Valley on the edge of the Vanoise National Park, the Paradiski ski area comprises Les Arcs, La Plagne and the hamlets in the Val Landry. Together, they provide 425km of linked pistes making the Paradiski area one of the largest lift-linked carousels in the world.
The ski area starts at 1200m and reaches up to 3250m on the glaciers meaning snow is pretty much guaranteed from mid-November to the end of April. Les Arcs naturally links in to Peisey-Vallandry but it wasn't until 2004 when the Vanoise cablecar was completed that La Plagne was linked in. Being such an important link, the Vanoise cablecar is the largest in the world capable of carrying 2000 people an hour at speeds of 45 m/s!
