Peisey-Vallandry is the home of the Vanoise Express - 200 person double decker cable car linking the resorts of Les Arcs & la Plagne placing Peisey-Vallandry at the hub of the Paradiski ski area totalling 425km of pistes. When it was built in 2003 it was the biggest, longest & fastest cable car in the world, recently beaten by Kitzbuhel, crossing the valley in 4 minutes. Plenty of interest for advanced skiers - probably one of the best areas for off-piste skiing in Les Arcs! Local highlights, the hike-able La Grive - local knowledge required and stable conditions but some of the best lines in resort with numerous shaded couloirs and a SE facing open face. Almost unlimited lines of off-piste tree skiing with very few surprises all with easy returns to main lifts. In good snow conditions, signature descents of 1300m vertical (1650 with hike ) right down to the valley floor at 1100m right on the edge of the Vanoise National Park. Huge beginners area & tree lined reds and blues to the village which are ideal in flat light and protected from the weather.

Trotsky from France writes:

Sitting in Peisey. Temperature is +7C and best prospect is a sun tan and a canoe down the mountain with the melting snow.
Great resort when there is snow though.
