Night skiing Les Coches

The ski region Paradiski is a true paradise also when it comes to night skiing. Night skiing fun can be had on the pistes in Les Arcs in the evening. Three night ski pistes are available for skiing in the evening: In Les Arcs 1600, the approx. 1 km blue piste is illuminated, and the 3-person chairlift Combettes takes night skiers up to the piste during the extended opening hours. Another floodlit piste can be found in Les Arcs 1800 further up the mountain. Here, the 6-person chairlift Marmottes leads to another, also approx. 1 km blue piste.
