The Skiing

No matter what your level or what type of skiing/boarding you are looking for, you will be able to find slopes to excite you: there is just so much here within the Paradiski area. We are located at the centre of this vast area and it is literally a couple of minutes ski down to the 6 man express lift that whisks you up to the mid-station in seven minutes. From here you can ski direct to the Les Arcs link or continue on to enjoy the La Plagne slopes. The choice is endless. It really is a dream, we assume that is why it's known as "the dream resort".

Beyond the piste, the off piste

To quote the Daily Mail guide book, Paradiski is "a splendid resort for going off-piste, with some long descents that are often deserted and untracked compared with the classic off-piste runs of more macho resorts like Val d'Isère."

Off piste skiing is not just for the advanced skier, there are easy runs which just happen to be away from the piste. We have found that people really appreciate the experience of skiing with a mountain guide once they have been introduced to it and so for those that would like to try something new we arrange introductory guided days as part of a group or for the more experienced we book our own private guide. Please contact us for details.

Snow boarders

This is a great area for boarders, beginners and experts alike. The choice is endless and includes a great off-piste playground, half pipes, board parks and border cross.

Non skier

The chalet is an ideal spot to just come and chill and enjoy the views, you'll also feel involved with the skiers as you can watch them from the window. But if you want action there are a number of activities available, these include an ice-skating rink, bob sleigh evenings, quad biking, cross country skiing, snowshoe walking, paragliding, cinema, water colour painting and whether a skier or not we can arrange in-house massages, all of which we book for you.

Lift pass

Because of the size of the ski area, the lift pass is split into different options so that it is possible to purchase a pass to suit your particular needs. The prices vary depending on areas required and your status e.g. student, elderly, families, children etc. 

  • There are four lifts (free) which cover the main Montchavin-Les Coches beginner areas.
  • For the 1-2 week skier the local Montchavin-Les Coches pass covers 40 Km of runs (20 lifts) and is the size of a small ski resort in its own right.
  • For the Intermediate and advanced skier there is enough to keep you busy with just the La Plagne pass or you could take the découvert pass which covers the whole of the La Plagne area with a 1 day extension into Les Arcs.
  • For the intermediate and advanced skier buying the full Paradiski pass will spoil you for choice, and give you mile after mile of varied runs and places to visit all week.
