Les Coches 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 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.

Visitor Reviews of Les Coches

JULIAN WARD from United Kingdom writes:

The resort is small, quiet and compact; worth a few seasons. If you want party, party, party go to the larger resorts, there's plenty!
i have skied all over Europe at different resorts catering for different levels and disciplines. Les Coches is one of those low key places with great access to all areas if you want it. If you want 24/7 entertainment then no, if you want family friendly and a few beers with your group after a full day's skiing then yes.
3rd year skiing at Les coches, will try somewhere different next year.
