10 THINGS TO DO WITHOUT SKIS
We don’t all ski so what can you do in a ski resort when surrounded by skiers and snow boarders?
Don’t worry, Paradiski, the 2nd biggest ski domain in the world, has some suggestions…
Rodeo Park, a 3000m adrenaline fuelled toboggan run from the top of Col de Chal chairlift; Where is it? Les Arcs; How much? €7.50/person
Bobsleigh with a professional – if the Mono Bob isn’t fast enough this will definitely get your bones shaking at 120km/h; Where is it? La Plagne; How much? €115/person (up to 9 people)
Snowshoeing – just pop the “raquettes” over your trainers and away you go; Where is it? All over Paradiski but try the Vanoise National Park in Peisey Vallandry for a special experience. How much? From €22 for half a day.
Biathlon – a real test of your concentration and shooting skills! Where is it? Peisey-Vallandry; How much? €84 per 1.5 hr session (up to 2 people)
The largest man-made ice tower in Europe. Climb up with axe and crampons – not as easy as it looks; Where is it? Champagny, La Plagne; How much? €38 per person.
Igloo village – stay the night or just have dinner there – it’s very cold; Where is it? Les Arcs, near Arc 1950; How much? From €9/person.
Spa – try the ice cave pool, jacuzzi or a treatment; Where is it? Arc 1950, Les Arcs; How much? Available to all. No membership required. Prices vary.
