Paradiski Area

Home Box - EGSW > The Skiing


In the heart of the French Alps the Paradiski area offers uninterrupted skiing between La Plagne and Les Arcs. Nestled high in the French Alps skiing is possible up to an altitude of 3250m, ensuring good snow conditions throughout the season. This fabulous ski area offers  425km of exciting endless pistes with over 238 slopes, 4 snowparks, 2 half pipes. With a range of skiing from charming interesting pistes running through snow spangled trees to lunar landscapes at the upper levels of the ski area and almost unlimited off piste, this ski area truly has plenty for every skier and snowboarder whatever their level and style of skiing or snowboarding.

"Perfect destination for your winter holiday."

"Paradiski always scores 5 stars."

"Ski area is so vast... has a lot to offer."

"A fantastic choice for all abilities."

EGSW Ski & Boarding School

Classes available for all levels
From 150€

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.

On this half-day lesson, you’ll experience the magic silence of beautiful scenery away from the crowds, and the joy of fresh snow: exhilarating, yet forgivingly soft!

With such a vast ski area at our feet, there are virtually unlimited Off Piste possibilities within the Paradiski ski area.

We have One Day and Three Day Off Piste Guided Groups accompanied by a High Mountain Guide. The itinerary will be decided at the start of each day by the Guide, based on the weather conditions and the best snow conditions.
