Skiing in Vallandry

The resort of La Plagne is also accessible via a ski lift. Due to its central location in such a large resort, Vallandry is a perfect ski holiday spot for both beginner and advanced skiers and snowboarders.

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.
In the heart of Les Arcs 1800, the snowpark Mille8 has opened its doors. The snowpark is nestled in a beautiful area in the Paradiski ski area. At the park you will find an exciting toboggan run, forest theme trail and a freestyle trail with various obstacles.
