Paradiski – Les Coches

The Paradiski area offers some of the most diverse skiing in France combining wide, sunny blue pistes, beautiful tree-lined runs and more technical glacier skiing. Our chalets in Les Coches are at the heart of the area, lying just one lift from the Vanoise Express, the world’s largest cable car, which links the two sides of the Paradiski, La Plagne and Les Arcs.

In detail

Les Coches at 1,450m is a small, modern village with a friendly atmosphere and our ski chalets probably have the best ski-in ski-out location you will ever find for a ski holiday with children – at the bottom of the piste into Les Coches, within 30 metres of the Plan Bois chair lift. The gondola which starts from the same place is perfect for young children skiing to reach the Ski School Jardin area. The traffic-free village has a variety of shops, including local speciality shops, a small supermarket, ‘The Last One’ bar run by the ever hospitable Phil and several restaurants, as well as one nightclub.

The Montchavin/Les Coches area has many pretty wooded slopes as well as sunny open runs at the top of the Dos Rond just three lifts above the chalet. The local area is north-facing and holds its snow well until late in the season.

Paradiski is a huge ski area with 425km of marked pistes, two glaciers with the highest lift topping 3,250m. The area has something for everyone from tree runs, open pistes, snowparks and technical pistes down both the Bellecote and Aiguille Rouge glaciers – an excellent ski holiday choice for families skiing with children.

Off-piste enthusiasts can hire a guide for the stunning ‘Col de Nant’ descent from the back of the Bellecote glacier in La Plagne through 2,000 vertical metres down to Champagny village. There are also great views from the peak of Roche de Mio (2700m), which is a great starting point for runs down to the main Plagne centre, Plagne Bellecote, Belle Plagne, Plagne Soleil, Plagne Villages and Aime 2000.

Alternatively, take the Vanoise Express for a breathtaking four-minute ride across the Ponthurin valley to Les Arcs where cruisy blue and red runs through the trees await you in the Peisey Vallandry ski area. The 7km run from the top of Les Arcs’ glacier and the area’s highest point, the Aguille Rouge, is not to be missed. Enjoy the wonderful 360 degree panorama with views across to Mont Blanc and into Italy and then head down to the village of Villaroger 7km lower down the mountain.

Les Arcs is also home to the famous flying kilometer – speed piste where racers reach speeds of up to 250km/h. For freestyle skiers and boarders Paradiski has two fantastic parks with kickers, rails and boxes for all levels.
