Located at the heart of the 1992 Savoie Olympic Region, and at the entrance of the Vanoise National Park.

Skiing in Peisey-Vallandry
Peisey-Vallandry is actually better placed than most of the Les Arcs stations to make the most of the whole Les Arcs (and La Plagne) ski areas with their 420km (260 miles) of runs. Arc 1950 and Arc 2000 are just over the back of the mountain from the two area, La Plagne across the valley and Arcs 1600 and 1800 along side - so Peisey-Vallandry is now, in fact, the hub of the whole Paradiski area. Most of the local runs are blues and reds, including the lovely long cruiser Aigle from the top of L'Ours chair all the way back to resort.
Experts may have to go a little further to keep them happy but the legendary 7km (4.5) mile long black from the top of the Aiguille Rouge down to Villaroger is worth the effort, one of the world's longest blacks it covers the world's biggest vertical for a run of this grading, a full 2000 metres. There are plenty of other challenges including mogul runs like the Dou d'Homme.
Despite the homely nature of Peisey-Vallandry, the off piste and high mountain skiing opportunities are vast when you consider the full range of options at Les Arcs and la Plagne, plus ease of access to other famous ski areas nearby. The Bureau des Guides is the place to go for advice and a range of tours, plus heliskiing over the border in Italy (heliskiing is illegal in France). One route you might like to try, given the lack of a marked piste to accompany the new lift between La Plagne and Les Arcs is the increasingly frequented off-piste route between the two giant areas, a great excursion returning via the Nancroix forest.
Snowboarding in Peisey-Vallandry
The Peisey - Les Arcs area claims to be the home of snowboarding and certainly some people were sliding around on the slopes here on something very similar to a snowboard a few years before Jake Burton hit the headlines in the early '80s. Some of the famous 'Apocalypse Snow' movies that first popularised the sport were initiated here.
The area is very 'boarder friendly with a combination of value accommodation, great terrain for all styles and abilities and as many chairs and gondolas as surface lifts (rare for a French resort). The terrain park Appacalypse above Arc 1600, which is also open to skiers, has a wide variety of features including diverse humps and mounds which making it an attractive and interesting site where everyone can find something to suit their taste and level. There are also tables, hips, a funbox, a pyramid, big and small gaps.
Peisey-Vallandry Aprés Ski
Given the spread of these small villages and under exposure to loud northern Europeans, this is not the place to go for an action packed nightlife. However there are a few choices depending on where you are based. La Taverne du Relais in Peisey Village is a good bar with pool table. On the mountain Le Jimmy's Bar is the best place for après-ski in Vallandry. Most of the other options are within restaurants.
