Cheap ski hire Peisey Vallandry
Halfway between the main villages of Les Arcs and La Plagne, lie Plan Peisey and Vallandry, adjoining resorts known collectively as Peisey Vallandry, and the best kept secret in the Paradiski area. As the departure point for the huge double decker cable car linking Les Arcs and La Plagne, each morning the guests at Peisey Vallandry have the enviable choice of deciding which corner of Paradiski area to explore far before the crowds converge and the queues swell.
The town distinguishes itself from its high profile mega-resort neighbours by focusing on its proud Nordic heritage, long skiing tradition, and proximity to the Vanoise National Park. Peisey Vallandry is actually a resort made up of close but slightly fragmented villages, and as such the après ski doesn’t have a definitive centre in the way that many modern resorts do. Making the short journey to The Flying Squirrel is definitely worth it for live music, decent food, and a great pub atmosphere, or try Greg’s Bar for the more lively side of this humble town, serving cocktails and free wifi until about 2am every night. The restaurants in Peisey Vallandry are excellent, ranging from the locally run La Ferme, to the Savoyard gastronomy of La Bergerie de Raphaël. If all else fails, the mountain restaurant of Le Solan does pizza delivery down to the village.
Peisey Vallandry is perfectly situated to make the most of Les Arcs, as well as the Vanoise Express and the link across to La Plagne. Exploring the vast 425km of pistes in the Paradiski area is well worth it, but the local slopes have a lot to offer too, especially in bad weather when the trees help enhance visibility. Fast chairs run straight out of both villages accessing some beautifully cruising blues and reds, while one further lift, Le Derby, takes skiers right into the main Arc 2000 bowl. Exceptional cross-country skiing and a successful biathlon centre have also contributed to this little Alpine town being awarded the rare and respected Nordic France classification, which recognises the best in Nordic ski infrastructure.
As a place to stay, Peisey Vallandry has a distinctly Dutch feel; in the early 1990s, a Dutch company was the first to see the potential of the village as an emerging resort, and it built 150 chalets here. The Brits also have a decent presence here, as do the native French, and this little town has a wonderful mix of little shops and balcony bars. Rent your equipment with SkiDiscount and pick it up at your choice of ski shop right in the village.
