Les Coches, purpose built with attractive traditional wooden chalet style, is situated in the heart of snow-sure Paradiski, one of the largest ski areas in Europe and offers you 425km of pistes and more than 2000m of vertical drop. Originally two distinct resorts - La Plagne and Les Arcs - the construction of the double decker Vanoise express lift in 2003, the largest cable car in the world, joined the two areas into one domain - Paradiski. Situated in the heart of the the Paradiski domain, just a five minute ski from the Vanoise express lift on the La Plagne side, Les Coches is ideally placed for exploring both La Plagne and Les Arcs. The Village does not suffer from the over crowded feel of some of the larger resorts but still has a good choice of bars and restaurants plus shops and a covered skating rink. Les Coches is not aimed at the party going crowd, but more at people who appreciate skiing in a traditional French resort. Much of the accommodation offers Ski ? In Ski ? Out, which is another godsend for those who prefer not to start the day on crowded buses or walking for half an hour to get to the piste. The skiing is suitable for all abilities with gentle runs back to resort for beginners and a huge domain with two glaciers for snow-sure skiing for the experts. There are two ski schools with English speaking instructors and guides. With limited but perfectly adequate facilities and for those who do not need a hedonistic nightlife or a vast choice of things to do off the slopes Les Coches ski resort and its close neighbour Montchavin ski resort are small villages at one end of the giant La Plagne ski region. Designed in typical Savoyard chalet style, they provide an intimate, homely base from which to explore the huge region. They are at the end of La Plagne closest to the lift over to neighbouring Les Arcs, placing Les Coches ski resort at the very heart of the bigger-still Paradiski region.
