Gateway to Paradiski Karen Anderson, Senior Ski Specialist

"In my opinion Vallandry has a perfect location in the Alps, with true doorstep skiing. Intermediates are extremely well catered for with a huge variety of runs from smooth cruising blues to challenging reds. The trees above Vallandry are great fun especially when it's chucking it down with snow and you can't see your way around the pistes."

Activities in Peisey-Vallandry

Nordic skiing is what Peisey-Vallandry is especially famous for and lessons can be arranged for all ability levels from complete novice up. There is also a shooting range nearby used for biathlon, should you wish to have a taster session.

Other outdoor options include dog sledding, ice climbing, snowshoeing, winter hiking on cleared trails or ski joering - being towed (gently) behind a pony while you're wearing your skis.  Paragliding is another possibility and there's also a cinema and museum.
