The well-established resorts of La Plagne and Les Arcs are part of one of the largest ski areas in the world, Paradiski, linked by the Vanoise Express cable car connecting the two areas. The distinctive double-decker cable car connects the two resorts via Les Coches in La Plagne and Plan Peisey in Les Arcs creating a combined ski area with a huge 425kms of marked pistes.
Les Arcs and La Plagne are known for their modern purpose built resorts but both also boast pretty villages such as Champagny, Les Coches, Montchavin and Peisey Vallandry. Bordered by the scenic Vanoise National park, the area includes some typically pretty mountain landscape.
For thrill-seekers, Les Arcs’ famous Flying Kilometre course is the place for the World’s speed record on skis with more than 150mph to beat.
