LA PLAGNE/LES ARC, FRANCE
About The Resort
Although La Plagne and Les Arcs are two separate ski areas, the Vanoise Express makes it possible to get from one to the other in just 5 minutes. Together they form the Paradiski Ski Area, one of the largest ski areas in Europe and the second biggest linked ski area in the world.
Both ski areas are large enough that you can't do the entire area in one day, and many of the hotels offer ski in ski out, allowing for ideal skiing.
