Resort guide

The local lifts start at 1250 meters and elevate to a very impresive 3200 meters. There are 425 km of runs to enjoy over the complete Paradiski area and the villages themselves have a traditional un spoilt feel and many of the chalets enjoy direct access to the pistes.

Montchavin and Les Coches are two lovely ski villages nestled on the hillside close to La Plagne and joined directly to Peisey Valladnry and Les Arcs by one of the largest single span cable cars in the world the Vanoise Express.

Montchavin situated at 1250 meters has a real farming feeling about it with lots of charming buildings and places to stop for the odd van chaud. Slightly up from Montchavin is Les Coches at 1450 meters
it has great access to the pistes from many of the chalets and only a few lifts to be swinging up to some of the best off piste in the area.

Both villages have excellent ski schools and facilities for kids and plenty of places to rest on your way home after a hard days skiing. There are plenty of quality English owned chalets here all with wonderful views across and the valley.

What we like:

  • The Vanoise Express
  • Amazing views
  • Exciting tree runs home
  • Good beginners area
  • Highly recommended ski schools
  • The village feeling
  • Quality English run chalets
  • Family friendly skiing

Resort guide

Mountain Rescue offers private airport transfers to Peisey Vallandry and the surrounding area of Peisey Nancroix, Moulin and Nancroix. All of these villages access to the pistes are the the Peisey Vallandry lift station located at 1650 meters.

Peisey  is also the home of the Vanoise Express cable car that spans the divide between the Les Arcs ski area and La Plagne. The 180 person cable car built in 2003 stretches 1800 meters and is elevated 380 meters above the valley floor. The introduction of the Vanoise Express created the ski area now known as the Paradiski, Les Arcs and La Plagne combined and makes for one of the largest ski areas in Europe with 425 KM of piste to keep you busy.

Peisey Vallandry is nestled comfortably into the tree line and enjoys skiing for all levels. There is an excellent beginners area with its own lifts and a selection of very wide open pistes and easy runs winding through the trees. Intermediate will find the Peisey Vallandry area a brilliant place to home the skills, massive blues and not to tricky reds will keep you entertains for days.

Peisey Vallandry’s pistes are varied and have an abundance of intermediate runs in fact over 50% of then could be considered for the intermediate level making it a fun place for families to enjoy.

Plenty of stuff for the advanced skiers too with lots of relatively easily accessible off piste such as La Grive (local knowledge and stable conditions required) as well as almost unlimited tree runs off the Derby chairlift.

About half of the chalets and apartments in the are a pretty much ski in ski out, the rest are only a few hundred meters from the pistes and lifts.

Peisey enjoys some good apres ski in the form of the Mont Blanc bar at the bottom of the Grizzly chair lift as well as La Vache, a smashing place for evening meals and afternoon beers alike.

There is also a lot of charming ski chalets in the surrounding villages such as Peisey Nancroix and Moulin, Peisey Nancroix has a free chairlift that brings skiers staying here up to the main area in a few minutes, many chalet companies also offer free shuttles to the slopes.

Transfers to Peisey Vallandry will take around one and a half hours from Chambery and two and a half from Geneva, Lyon and Grenoble.

  • Tree lined runs
  • Great beginners area
  • Bar Mont Blanc
  • The easy access to Les Arcs and La Plagne
  • La Vache restaurant
  • Easy access to fun off piste
  • Le Derby chair lift
