Skiing and boarding for all levels
Arcs 1950 & 2000 are a great place to learn how to ski. Beginners will feel at home straight away with the “Evolutif" teaching technique that is widely used here.
The skier starts off with short skis, and will gradually progress onto longer skis as they improve their skills.
There are a number of beginners slopes available providing an ideal learning ground, with plenty of easy wide spacious blue runs which are excellent practice for progressing beginners.
It’s an excellent intermediate area, One particular strength is that most main routes have easy and more difficult alternatives, making it good for mixed-ability groups.
Strong intermediates shouldn’t shy away from the blacks when in good condition – most are not scarily steep.
We especially like its well-groomed, tree-lined runs which have a very friendly feel and are remarkably uncrowded much of the time, allowing great fast cruising. Cautious intermediates have plenty of blue cruising terrain.
Paradiski has a lot to offer experts with an interesting combination of both off-piste and on-piste skiing. With ski lifts reaching 3,226 meters at the top of the Aiguille Rouge and 3,417 meters at the top of the Bellecôte in La Plagne, the Paradiski ski area offers seemingly endless opportunities.
The black runs on the Aiguille Rouge, are excellent and the runs down to Pré-St-Esprit merit their black classification. There are many off-piste routes with some classic favorites such as the Grand Col and its 1,700 meter vertical drop!
Perfect for those who want to enjoy a real off-piste experience without having to trek miles from civilisation into the wild.
Ever since 1983 when Regis Rolland introduced the sport in the cult film Apocalypse Snow, Les Arcs has been a hot spot for snowboarders. It offers excellent free-riding and plenty of wide-open rolling slopes for intermediates and beginners too.
The well-maintained and versatile Apocalypse Park is great and boasts jumps and rails at three levels of difficulty.
The lowest is perfect for keen but inexperienced boarders (and skiers) yet can still provide pretty sizeable air when approached at speed! The black jumps are formidable, and the timid can still enjoy an afternoon in the park watching braver souls trying their luck.

If you want to make the most from your ski week and aren’t at the level to join our hosted groups, we recommend you join the EGSW Ski school classes. The EGSW Ski school classes start on a Monday rather than a Sunday so you have the opportunity to ski independently to get your ski-legs back.
