Paradiski – La Plagne

Les Coches, La Plagne, France

Les Coches


Les Coches (1,450 m) is one of the 10 stations of La Plagne, right at the heart of the extensive Paradiski area. Unlike the purpose-built ski villages at higher altitudes Les Coches is built in traditional style and has considerable charm.  It boasts some of the prettiest tree-lined ski runs in the area as well as superb local restaurants, plus bars, cafes and a nightclub.


Paradiski has been created by the linking of La Plagne and Les Arcs by the Vanoise Express, a double-decker cable car situated just above Les Coches.  It takes less than four minutes to reach Plan Peisey, Les Arcs. The Paradiski area comprises 410 km of piste, two skiable glaciers, two peaks above 3,000 meters, 232 pistes (12 green; 125 blue, 64 red and 31 black) and 174 ski lifts.

Intermediate skiers

Paradiski has much to offer all levels of skier with many areas particularly suited to intermediates.  If you’re an intermediate skier you’ll find you can really clock up the miles in Paradiski!

Advanced skiers

If you’re an advanced or expert skier looking for thrills you’ll find it easy to access all the exciting skiing that the Paradiski area has to offer from Les Coches due to its central location within the area and its proximity to the Vanoise Express.


Les Arcs has long been one of the most popular resorts with boarders.  In addition to the two Paradiski boarder cross runs, four snow parks and two half pipes, there is also vast off-piste to explore.
