A favourite among parents and our staff alike

While many of the Esprit staff in Les Arcs and Belle Plagne have done seasons in other resorts such as Val d’Isère, Serre Chevalier and Alpe d’Huez and most have holidayed with family all over Europe, we all agree that The Paradiski Ski Area is one of the best we have ever skied!

So why do we love it so much? Once you are on the slopes, it becomes clear just how vast the area is, and with one lift you can ski all the way down into Les Arcs 1800; a beautiful town with lots going on. You can also venture further afield by getting a lift from 1800 over to Les Arcs 2000, 1950 and 1600. The bubble over is mesmerising. As you soar over the peak to Les Arcs 2000, you are struck by its enormous size and monumental beauty.

Les Arcs boasts an impressive array of slopes and snow, whether you are looking for blue, blacks or powder, you are sure to find it. This is what we think makes the Paradiski Ski Area so great; its versatility!

Arc 2000 is in a natural bowl and the snow conditions are always good!

Once you have torn yourself away from the beauty of the tree runs in Peisey and do make it into Les Arcs, you are immediately presented with a vast variety of runs to choice from, all leading back to the stunning town of Les Arcs 2000, which holds a plethora of shops, cafes and restaurants. Don’t worry though, if you would like a cheeky little drink on the mountain in the thick of it all, there are plenty of mountain bars in both Peisey and Les Arcs which vary in style, from the lively Arpette Bar to the more relaxed, but equally as amazing, Bar Mont Blanc. Then you can come back and relax in one of our saunas or hot tubs, and the best bit….. there is still the whole of La Plagne to explore!!

This means one thing and one thing only: by 7pm the little ones are so happy and worn out they need to go to bed to be on tip top form the next day, giving the parents time to have a glass of wine (or two) by the fireplace and relax!
