This March, for the second year running, Les Arcs in Paradiski will be home to a special week of activities with a Great Britain theme.
Paradiski is a huge, increasingly-popular ski area with plenty of apres-ski. The 425km ski area was created when the well-established resorts of La Plagne and Les Arcs were linked by the Vanoise Express cable car.
Les Arcs and La Plagne are made up of modern purpose-built resort bases but both also boast a few pretty villages such as Champagny, Les Coches, Montchavin or Peisey Vallandry. Bordered by the scenic Vanoise National park, the area includes some typically pretty mountain landscape.

This will be followed by the ‘British Family Party’ hosted by DJ Fred Metral! There’ll be a dancefloor on the snow, and plenty of opportunities to indulge in mulled wine, hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows. The village’s pubs and bars will also be taking part in all the après-ski fun!

Throughout the week the villages of Les Arcs hold happy hours in pubs and bars, themed evenings at various venues and dedicated GB-themed menus in restaurants. For more information about the week or to find out about participating in any of the events visit the Les Arcs Tourism Office.
