I love Paradiski

When they linked two large ski resorts, La Plagne and Les Arcs together in December 2003 with The Vanoise Express, a €14 million project, it created one of the top three largest ski areas in the world – and this is why I love Paradiski.
Vanoise Express, Paradiski
This is high altitude skiing at its best with summits in both La Plagne and Les Arcs at over 3300 meters.

To enjoy the best of both resorts, Montchavin and Peisey are both perfectly placed very close to the Vanoise Express so highly recommended places to stay for your ski trip.
Both resorts frequently upgrade their lift systems so getting around is quick and easy. In good weather, I love heading up to the glacier in La Plagne.

In poor visibility, I enjoy skiing on the tree lined runs above Vallandry.

There’s a great choice of restaurants on the mountain, Le Ferme in Pre St.Esprit below Les Arcs 1950 by the Combouciere lift is my favourite hideaway and I love Chalet de l’Arc above Arc 2000, the highest bakery in the Alps and famous for its Chausson, a rustic loaf with a hollow centre filled with a choice of hot tasty casserole fillings. In La Plagne I like Matafan in Belle Plagne for its Savoie offering.

For the more adventurous and skilled, get yourself up to the North Face of Bellcote with a guide for one of the best rides of your life. Steep, deep and 2000 meters of vertical with an average pitch of 60 degrees and some. There’s a fab little restaurant at the bottom as a reward.
Paradiski is the ultimate ski resort, vast areas of high altitude skiing with plenty of variation for all abilities.
On a bluebird day, there’s no place I would rather be!
