Location and surroundings

Les Arcs/Peisey-Vallandry

The villages of Les Arcs and Peisey-Vallandry together form a ski resort which is part of the great Paradiski area. Les Arcs/Peisey-Vallandry has a total of 106 pistes in a 200km area.

Skiing in Les Arcs/Peisey-Vallandry

The side of Les Arcs is know for being quite busy with a lot going on, however the side of Peisey-Vallandry is know for being more peaceful and quiet for skiers/snowboarders. Usually there are little to no queues for the ski lifts in this area. For beginners the lower part of Arc 1600 and 1800 are great areas to practice and learn the basics. For the more advanced skiers the Aiguille Rouge slope on the mountain of the same name is a must do. It is perhaps the most difficult slope within the whole of the Paradiski area. As most of the slopes in the area are above 1800m, it is very snow sure.

Snowpark Mille8
