10 years of Paradiski – let’s GO!
On the 20th December 2003, 425km of fresh new pistes were opened up to the public for the first time. The world’s largest cable car was launched and it linked the magnificent resorts of Les Arcs, Peisey-Vallandry and La Plagne. I am of course talking about the stunning Paradiski, one of the largest skiing domains in the world!
With magical forests, sweeping bends and amazing slopes, whether it’s high altitude descents, or wide ‘cruisy’ blues the Paradiski area has something for everyone, young and old, all abilities. It’s no wonder their motto is ‘the dream resort’, whether you are a repeat guest or a Paradiski newbie, winter 2013/14 is THE year to visit this breathtaking corner of the world.
With their 10th birthday looming, organizers are pulling out all the stops to ensure it is celebrated in style, and stylish it will be! They have asked haute-couture designer and world-renowned artist, Jean-Charles De Castelbajac, to decorate the two double decker Vanoise Express cable cars in a unique creation, which will feature throughout the winter season.
Along with this, they will be hosting the Paradiski Gravity event, which will be held on the 16th December 2013, this is a first in the world of ‘highline’ (high altitude slack line) whereby the slack line will be strung between the two cable cars of the Vanoise Express at 380m high! They have roped in (pun intended) two of the world’s best ‘highliners’ Julien Millot and Tancrede Melet to negotiate their way along the rope that will be suspended above the valley and against a magnificent backdrop (having been there myself, magnificent is an understatement.)
If all of the above has not yet persuaded you to book a week in these heavenly peaks, then make sure you keep an eye on our blog, as we are celebrating 10 years of Paradiski in our own little way.
We will be posting 10 reasons, 1 a week, of why we at Ski Total love Paradiski and its resorts, we will also share with you some important dates for your diary, straight from the resorts mouth! So watch this space…
