Paradiski celebrates its 20 years !

NOV 21 2023

In 2003, a new chapter was written in the history of the French Alps when the resorts of Les Arcs, Peisey-Vallandry and La Plagne joined together to create the third largest ski area in the world: Paradiski.

A bold wedding who transcends the summits

In 2003, Paradiski came to life in the Alps by bringing together the resorts of Les Arcs, Peisey-Vallandry and La Plagne to become one of the largest ski areas in the world.
Spread across several massifs of the Vanoise, it connects more than 425 kilometers of ski slopes, of which 70% are located at an altitude of more than 2000 meters.

With the inauguration of its Vanoise Express, an extraordinary cable car that connects the mountains together, Paradiski also connects the unexpected. This audacity will continue to guide the energy of the Paradiski actors to offer surprising and memorable encounters. Since then, this symbol has guided Paradiski actors and ambassadors in their actions and ambitions: offering experiences that hybridize people, generations, horizons, cultures.

In 2023, the domain celebrates its 20th anniversary and wants to continue to dare, by making the mountain a space conducive to all encounters.

Discover the Paradiski film which traces its history.


Paradiski was born from the unexpected. To take you no higher
nor further, but elsewhere. To help you discover the mountain
and open yourself to multitudes of worlds. Paradiski invents, innovates,
created to offer the mountain, its inhabitants and its visitors
new avenues of wonder.
Since its creation in 2003, Paradiski has made the old proverb lie
who says that only mountains do not meet. The inauguration
of the Vanoise Express, an extraordinary cable car that connects the mountains
between them, proves that everything can be connected. Thus, the stations
des Arcs, Peisey-Vallandry and La Plagne are united to become
this ski area then unimaginable.
From then on, Paradiski became the space for all meetings.
Meetings between the inhabitants of our valleys, who have the mountains
in the heart. Between the inhabitants of the world, who have the mountain in their dreams.
Between generations who have mountains of knowledge to exchange.
At the dawn of our 20s, the most unexpected encounters have yet to be created.

The mountain, so far from the ocean, was nevertheless born from its depths.
The mountain, so far from the metropolises, is today directly connected.
The mountain, so natural, is nevertheless omnipresent in culture.
The mountain, so ancestral, is nevertheless so linked to our future.
In the mountains, the horizon goes so far that it can meet all the worlds,
all disciplines, all cultures.
This horizon is where we are going.
The mountain is an open environment, and an open environment.
So let's welcome the ocean, the city, the arts, the future, and let's create.
Let's hybridize. Let's dare. How we dared the Vanoise Express.
We want to create the most unexpected encounters, because
these are the most memorable. Because a mountain that remains in
spirits, is a mountain that lasts.
La Vanoise is our heritage and we want to perpetuate its
