Peisey-Les Arcs - Jewel of the ‘Paradiski’ area

Plan-Peisey is a quiet little ski village, which has proved a huge hit with Esprit ski families ever since its introduction, due to its lovely chalets and superb location, right on the link between the Les Arcs and La Plagne ski areas. Plan-Peisey is ideal for family ski holidays, as initially the children’s lessons will be held in the ski garden just behind the base of the 6-man chairlift, just 50m from our chalets.

The numerous blue runs through the forest surrounding the village will also make a day out ‘en famille’ at the end of the week a delight. The combined ‘Paradiski’ area with the guaranteed snow of the glaciers du Varet, Bellecote and de la Chiaupe is one of the biggest and best in Europe, and Plan-Peisey lies right at the most perfect spot, directly at the Les Arcs side of the ‘Vanoise Express’ cable-car, which whisks skiers across the valley between La Plagne and Les Arcs.

Esprit Classic Child Care

For parents our Esprit Classic Child Care offers a completely seamless service and means being able to leave your accommodation after breakfast to head for the first lift, only needing to return after the last one shuts. We look after you children completely throughout the ski day if you wish. For the kids it means non-stop fun with english speaking staff and children!

Collections Service

Five mornings a week, children in Esprit Sprite classes and Spritelet Snow Clubbers are collected from their chalets by our staff (and/ or the ski school instructors) and taken to the appropriate slopes for their lessons or to the resort’s Snow Club for morning fun.

At the end of the morning lesson or Snow Club, children joining Supervised Lunch, afternoon Snow Club or with afternoon Sprite sessions will be collected and returned to the Chalet Renard and Chalet Ourson for lunch. On busy weeks other chalets may also be used for lunch.

Snow Clubs

The Snow Club is based in a dedicated room in the Chalets des Deux Domaines with outings for their specific snow fun activities. All children in afternoon Sprites or Spritelets will be taken to and collected from their session by our staff and will join the Snow Club children for the remainder of the afternoon, before being returned to their ‘home’ chalet for high tea.

The Skiing in Peisey-Les Arcs

The Skiing

Ski range from 1,250m – 3,250m

Beginners

The local village slopes offer plenty of gentle blue runs for practising technique and the opportunities to venture higher on blue runs as you improve, into Les Arcs or across the valley to La Plagne, are limitless. You can even ski all the way to and from Arc 1800 without leaving blue runs.

Intermediates

The Les Arcs side offers you over 200km of wide open pistes to explore and the 4-minute cable-car link to La Plagne opens up another 220km. The high altitude slopes offer complete snow security, and the choice and variety of skiing is simply awesome. One week just won’t be long enough!

Advanced

Skiers in search of a challenge will be spoilt for choice with the number of adrenaline-inducing black runs now accessible. On the home slopes down to Plan-Peisey from Les Arcs is an enjoyably testing run, the Ecureuils, or try the exciting 7km long black from the Aiguille Rouge down to Villaroger. Across the valley on the  La Plagne side, head up to the glacier to take on the challenging north face of Bellecôte, one of the most famous off-piste routes in the Alps (guide required).

Powder Potential

With fresh snowfall, both sides of the link offer blissful playgrounds of powder. The tree-lined home slopes of Plan-Peisey will appeal to keen glade skiers, and the open bowls higher up offer endless acres for delightful days of waist-deep skiing.

Snowboarding

There is a superb fun-park and half-pipe in Les Arcs and specialist snowboard schools who offer excellent tuition. The well-groomed pistes are ideal for perfecting technique and there are plenty of swooping runs back to the village. Across the link to La Plagne, you can enjoy another fun-park at Plagne Bellecôte.

Après Ski

Dog-sledding and snow-shoeing have proved extremely popular, for those keen to explore the magical winter landscapes further after skiing. Nightlife is a little limited, but there is a choice of bars and restaurants in both Plan Peisey and especially in adjacent Vallandry, where there is the Mont Blanc bar, run by English owners, which has a range of evening entertainment on offer, and the Flying Squirrel has free WiFi and satellite sports. Several local restaurants offer good, varied menus to enjoy on our chalet hosts’ night off.

Activities

  • Snow-shoeing
  • Dog-sledding
  • Horse-drawn sleighs
  • 43 km of well-kept cross-country ski trails

Other Amenities

  • Cinema in Vallandry
