Off-piste Peisey-Vallandry Arcs 1800

The Paradiski ski area (Les Arcs, La Plagne, Peisey-Vallandry) offer exceptional possibilities for off-piste skiing, with easily accessible routes for skiers of all levels.

I would like to help you explore a different facet of the mountain, wonderful spots where you can catch a glimpse of the local Alpine fauna (deer, ibex, marmottes, various hares, snow partridges, bearded vultures and capercaillie etc.).

An unforgettable experience and ideal way to appreciate the silent charm of the mountains. Here a professional off-piste instructor will teach you the techniques and conduct needed for the mountain environment as well as how to recognise the dangers that are inherent in mountain sports.

The latter has to be an absolute priority when we have the chance to ski away from patrolled areas because as beautiful and generous as it may be, the mountain remains a natural environment that we are unable to control. Our knowledge, experience and prudence will protect us from dangers we may encounter.

Ski or snow-show trekking in Paradiski

There is a huge variety of opportunities in the Paradiski, Peisey-Vallandry ski area and on the "versant du soleil" (Beaufortin, Granier and Rosset) for exploring the forest sector or enjoying the pleasures of the climb and of ski or snow-shoe trekking.

I attach great importance to respecting safety rules in all off-piste trips and reserve the right to cancel outings should the weather conditions prove doubtful or the snow cover unstable

Each client is equipped with an ARVA (a personal avalanche beacon), and three backpacks with shovels and probes will be handed out to the group. You may also hire backpacks with airbags in the Peisey-Vallandry resort.
