2nd largest linked skiable domain In the world
The Vanoise Express cable car is at the heart of the Paradiski ski domain. It links the key resorts of Les Arcs/Peisey-Vallandry and la Plagne taking you from one station to the other in just four minutes at a speed of 45km/h; 12.5 metres per second; smoothly (there are no pylons) covering a distance of 1,824 metres in comfort and absolute silence. The crossing drops 380 metres between stations since Peisey sits at an altitude of 1612 metres whilst Coches is at a lower 1548m.
The panoramic cabins have two floors suspended above the picturesque Ponthurin valley and offer the unique panorama of Mont Blanc, the Swiss and Italian Alps and the Beaufortain massif. Built by POMA, the Vanoise Express is an ultra modern cable car and is one of a kind in respect of its size, technology and in particular the fact that its comprises two, separate engines on two separate cables allowing the cable cars to operate independently of one another.
Every cabin holds 200 people and there’s little risk of a long wait either: these cable cars can turnover 4000 people per hour.
Paradiski is at the heart of the French Alps in the Tarentaise region, 660km from Paris, 200km from Lyon, Geneva (Switzerland) or Turin (Italy), 400km from Marseille, 760km from Munich (Germany).
