Ultra High Altitude
Ski areas such as Paradiski, Isère, Tignes Val d’Isere and the 3 Vallèes are renowned as high altitude winter playgrounds. The ultra-high altitude resorts they encompass allow skiers to ski later into the season, as the higher altitude means it lower temperatures, resulting in better quality of snow!
Paradiski, an intermediates paradise, is home to resorts like ultra-high resorts like Belle Plagne, Plagne Soleil & Plagne Village, and Arc 2000, all are great for families with their higher altitude nursery slopes – everyone can enjoy the benefits of the snow quality higher up! Paradiski is an amazing lift-linked ski area, home to impressive Vanoise Express double-decker cable car, which links Les Arcs and Peisey Vallandry to La Plagne and makes it easy to ski all over the area. A little further south, closer to Grenoble, the Isère region is home to Alpe d’Huez and Les Deux Alpes. These lively resorts are known for their sunny slopes and good snow quality all season, combine that with the glacier skiing in Les Deux Alpes and you’ve got a perfect ski break! Tignes has some of Europe’s highest skiing. Its snow-sure reputation and great links across to Val d’Isère makes it a favourite amongst the later season skiers. Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe, meaning it’s the perfect place for a high altitude ski holiday. Direct links across the 3 Vallèes allow you to ski down into Les Menuires and across to Meribel and even Courchevel – it’s the largest lift-linked ski area in the world, so there’s definitely something for everyone! You can access all types of terrain, from tree-lined to open glacier skiing.
