Paradiski opens its 425km of pistes on 17th December
Bourg-Saint-Maurice, France 15th December 2011 - Paradiski – the large ski domain in the French Alps that incorporates les Arcs/Peisey Vallandry/la Plagne – and its huge cable-car the Vanoise Express will open this Saturday the 17th December at 9am. Fully open for the Christmas season, Paradiski can confirm that the entire 425km of pistes will be available to skiers thanks to the recent heavy snow fall resulting in ideal winter snow conditions.
The entire domain is currently undergoing one final last check before opening its doors: the tracks are being beaconed, any residual damage being rectified and mechanical equipment is being given the once over.
With over 70% of Paradiski situated above 2000m, it offers the ideal altitude to make the most of the winter snow conditions [at the moment temperatures are averaging 0 degrees during the day, dropping to minus figures during the night]. At 1200 metres, all activities will be accessible thanks to the recent heavy snowfall.
Eight years after its creation, Paradiski – which connects the stations of Les Arcs, Peisey-Vallandry and La Plagne – houses more and more holiday makers from France and beyond. For this winter 2011/2012, Paradiski has invested 21,7 million Euro for the construction of infrastructure, replacement of equipment and reinvestment and expansion of equipment for cultivating the snow.
On the morning of the 17th December Christmas holiday makers will take to the slopes to enjoy a range of snowsports.
