11 Oct Winter Activities
Only 4 minutes drive from the chalet lies the unspoilt resort of Villaroger with the chairlift taking you up to the fabulous ski area of Paradiski (Les Arcs / La Plagne) One of the largest ski areas in the world and boasting the longest black run in Europe (Some 7km which actually finishes in Villaroger), skiing here is endless, suiting all levels. The Vanoise Express lift between Les Arcs and La Plagne is an experience in itself!! Up above Villaroger you will find some of the best off piste skiing in Les Arcs, easily accessible off the Grand Col lift, for those who feel a little more adventurous. Long after the resorts of Val D’Isere and Tignes have been tracked out, the off-piste powder is still here enabling you to make fresh tracks days after a snowfall.
Val D’Isere and Tignes
This world-famous ski resort (Due to hold the World Cup in 2009) is a 20 minute drive away. The Espace Killy area linking Val D’Isere and Tignes boasts 300km of pistes, offering skiing to suit all levels, from cruisy blues to some of the most challenging off-piste in the world
This is the only Savoyarde resort to offer an International Ski area of 150km of pisted runs is only 15 minutes drive away. From here you can ski down into La Thuile, Italy, for a well-earned Italian lunch. Or for those who are a little more adventurous, enjoy the magic and thrill of a heli-skiing trip
This unspoilt, beautiful resort is a 15 minute drive away. Here you can enjoy some of the finest powder skiing and boarding around, or alternatively, ski the gentle tree-lined pistes. Build up an appetite and enjoy lunch in a traditional Savoyarde Restaurant.
Lessons and ski school can be taken in Villaroger or alternatively, there is a ski school at Ste Foy, which is a fifteen minute drive away. We can also make arrangements for a personal ski instructor subject to availability. This service has proved highly popular with our guests in the past. We can arrange heli- skiing trips and mountain guides for a day off piste or an Itinery Route!
Book your skis and ski boots before your holiday and they will be delivered direct to Chalet Le Loissel for fitting. Let others do the running around, so that you can hit the slopes the moment you arrive in the mountains.
