About Les Arcs
Peisey is a traditional Alpine village, unspoilt by the over development found in many French resorts. The village of Vallandry situated above Peisey has a larger selection of shops, bars and restaurants. Peisey-Vallandry is set in the heart of the 'Paradiski' area from where the double decker, 200 person 'Vanoise Express' lift crosses the valley linking Les Arcs with La Plagne. The breathtaking ride allows you access to 2 huge resorts - 425km of piste (12 green, 132 blues, 65 reds and 29 black, two glaciers and 5 snowparks, 3 boardercross, 1 half-pipe). Snow making facilities cover 246 hectares with 755 snow canons. 70% of the Paradiski region is over 2000 metres in altitude - so 'snow sure'.
The Paradiski area is now one of the largest ski areas in the world, offering over 2000 metres of verical descent and so many pistes you'll struggle to cover them all in a week. The tree lined runs, terrain parks and phenomenal off piste, make Peisey-Vallandry the place to be.
The resort offers numerous activities that can be arranged locally or through Seventy3: Ice climbing, Helisiiking, Snow shoeing, Husky rides, Parapenting (Paragliding), Rides on the Olympic Bobsleigh run in La Plagne, Skidoo rides, Cross country skiing, Walks in the National Park - look out for Chamois and Bearded Vultures.
