resort info

Les Coches is one of the most attractive resorts in the huge La Plagne ski area.  It also has the added attraction of being right next to the spectacular double-decker Vanoise Express cable car lift (which spans the Ponturin Gorge) that links La Plagne to Les Arcs to create the Paradiski Area, one of the world's largest. 

 

Les Coches is an intimate, modern wood and stone village, which, unlike infamous earlier developments, has been sympathetically designed, to give the atmosphere of a traditional alpine ski village. There’s a selection of shops and restaurants with more at neighbouring Montchavin.  

 

The resort is traffic free, and offers children’s clubs and a nursery, so is a perfect location for families

 

For après ski activities there is a natural ice skating rink, games room, snow shoeing, paragliding and marked walking trails.

 

In other La Plagne villages nearby there are other activities, including the rare chance for the brave to descend a bobsleigh run, in this case built for the 1992 Winter Olympics staged in the area. You can descend in a ‘taxi’ bobsleigh at top speed behind a professional driver or jump in a ‘self steering’ craft which goes a little slower but still fast enough!

 

Voted one of the top resorts for Intermediates

 

Why Les Coches?

·          Direct ski access to the north-facing slopes of La Plagne

·          Located by the La Plagne-Les Arcs Paradiski area

·          A quiet alternative to La Plagne

Child Care

 

Les Coches has acquired the Famille Plus label for its childcare facilities. Please view here for more information on the Famille Plus label.

 

Montchavin Les Coches has a natural appeal for families, which has earned it the famous Famille Plus label awarded by Ski France: it's at medium altitude (1,250 m and 1,450 m), has a built environment on a human scale and there's no car traffic in the villages.

 

In addition, there are high-quality child-minding facilities (with state accreditation) designed to provide a real service for parents wanting to make the most of their day's skiing and to introduce children of all ages to the world of snow in the best possible conditions.

Nurseries

CACAHUETE located in Les Coches welcomes babies from 6 months to 3 years. Indoor and outdoor activities: drawing, painting, games, sledging, walks, snowmen and of course, time for a nap, if required.

A WINTER ANNIVERSARY, PARADISKI CELEBRATES 10 YEARS
Ten years ago, on the 20th December, 2003, the Vanoise Express cable car was born. In the space of 10 years, Paradiski has welcomed over 5 million skiers on its pistes! To celebrate this anniversary, Paradiski has asked the haute-couture designer, Jean-Charles DeCastelbajac, to decorate the Vanoise Express.  The world-renowned artist and innovator will cover the two double-decker Vanoise Express cable cars in a unique creation which will feature throughout winter 2013/2014.



 

 

 

Other Amenities

There is a natural ice skating rink, snow shoeing, paragliding and walking trails to experience in Les Coches.


ski info

Paradiski is the second largest ski area in the world and one of the very large interconnected areas. The ski lifts rise for an incredible 2000 vertical metres above the village to snowsure glacier snow fields, a figure matched by less than a dozen other resorts on the planet. With the massifs of Les Arcs/ Peisey-Vallandry and La Plagne linked by the Vanoise Express, the world’s largest cable car, the ultra-modern machine is a two-level panoramic cabin and crosses between the massifs of the 3 resorts in just 4 minutes. It can carry 4000 people per hour. The Paradiski lift system is one of the fastest and most modern that exists.

 

With 70% of the ski runs at over 2000 metres and one of the world’s most modern artificial snow systems, Paradiski guarantees top-quality snow conditions from December to April. With the best-known peaks, such as Mont Blanc and the Pierra Menta forming a panoramic background, Paradiski is also the gateway to the Vanoise national park, a nature reserve of 53,000 hectares.

 

Before venturing on to the vast La Plagne ski area or even the 425km (266 miles) of Paradiski, many visitors enjoy the lovely sheltered skiing above the village on fairly easy tree lined runs.  North facing slopes and snowmaking means resort level snow is normally excellent.

LES COCHES SKI AREA

To get to La Plagne there are a few lift systems to take but the local slopes have a number of easy-intermediate runs. Les Coches is a little alpine village which is linked to the large Paradiski ski area so you get the best of both worlds.

 

The slopes of the La Plagne side are mostly north-facing and between 2000m and 2700m making most of La Plagnes slopes snow sure. The local Montchavin-Les Coches slopes are tree-lined where as above this (where the high altuitude villages are) its mainly open.

 

In winter, the Vanoise Express 200 person cable car (2km wide and 4 minutes in duration) is accessible to skiers and pedestrians.  On Montchavin side though, the cable car arrives on a ski slope. You can't reach Montchavin on foot from Les Arcs. To get to the cable car from Les Coches centre, you need to take one lift and then ski on blue runs - so its pretty quick and easy. It's much quicker to access the Vanoise Express from either Monthchavin or Les Coches than from the altitude La Plagne villages which are further away.

 

LES COCHES BEGINNERS

La Plagne is a good place to learn with 18 free ski lifts in the whole area. Each village has at least one. There are beginners areas in Montchavin/Les Coches (as well as Plagne Centre, Plagne 1800, Aime la Plagne and Plagne Bellecote).

 

The Plan Bois area above Les Coches has good gentle slopes for beginners served by a six-pack; there is also a nursery area on the other side of Les Coches accessed by a bucket lift.

 

LES COCHES INTERMEDIATES

Intermediates will find heaps of interlinked blue and red ski runs across the entire region; infact 80% of La Plagnes 225km are blue or red. It’s an intermediates paradise!

 

It can be fun to try to see how far across this giant ski area you can venture in a day, the lifts and runs seem to go on and on. Paradiski has extensive intermediate slopes with big lift networks.

 

LES COCHES EXPERTS

Experts will be happy if they sign up with one of the ski schools to tackle the under-rated off-piste or attempt the near 2000m vertical down from the north face of the Bellecôte glacier, one of the world's longest and toughest runs. High-altitude skiing with helicopter drop-off, ski safaris, ski touring and even ascents of Mont-Blanc are possible, always with a professional guide.

 

LES COCHES OFF-PISTE

Hire a guide and explore the vast off-piste potential in La Plagne. The glacier and Biolley sectors have some excellent off-piste terrain. For the more experienced, the north face of Bellecote presents a splendid challenge. Within the ski domain there are 'Natur' Pistes also. This means you can learn to ski in an off-piste style safety, but within the ski area and patrolled by ski patrol. They are ungroomed ski runs.

 

Not to be missed when you visit Paradiski!

360 degree panorama of La Grande Rochette at La Plagne. The Aiguille Rouge descent, a mythical 7km non-stop, from the glacier at 3226m all the way to Villaroger at 1200m (on the Les Arcs side). One of the steepest drops in Europe! Once at the top, climb up the observation point and see the views towards the Swiss, Italian and French Alps right to the Jura mountain range. A view like none other!
