Since 2003, Paradiski has been offering skiers one of the largest and most varied ski areas in the world, thanks to its 3 resorts – Les Arcs, Peisey-Vallandry and La Plagne – a unique playground of 425 kms with pistes for all levels, between forests and glaciers.

Paradiski is equipped with the largest cable car in the world, the Vanoise Express, a real technological feat, linking the two massifs in just four minutes.

Because each visitor has specific needs during their stay, Paradiski launched the Paradiski YUGE app in 2015, designed as a real digital companion. It now accompanies more than 700,000 people, making up a real community of Yugeurs in the Paradiski area.

Discover the particularity of each resort and their novelties for this winter.

Les Arcs was the first of the large Tarentaise resorts to base its development strategy on ambitious eco-responsible objectives. It has already been awarded the Flocon Vert label and will be the first European mountain resort to be certified B CORP, one of the most demanding international certifications.

Les Arcs is the only mountain resort in France to enjoy almost direct access to the ski slopes by train. With its TGV international train station in Bourg Saint Maurice and a funicular that links the station to the altitude sites in seven minutes, it fulfils the promise of zero-carbon access, from London in particular with Eurostar.

Bonus: Les Arcs offers the journey up on the funicular to all those who travel by train.
