Free gift for all guests!
New for Season 2016/17, we're giving every guest staying with us a FREE gift! Waiting for you at the chalet will be a very cute and handy, mini thermometer and compass on a carabiner key ring. Perfect for checking how cold it is and which direction you should be going in, when you're out on the slopes!
Lift Pass Changes
New for the coming season, there are now just 2 choices:
- La Plagne Pass – which includes one day in Les Arcs
- Paradiski Pass includes a free ½ day on the Saturday of your arrival – which makes an early flight or the overnight train a very attractive proposition.
As before, family packs are available (2 adults, 2 or 3 children up to 17yrs) whereby all adults are priced as children. Children under 5yrs are free, adult passes start at 13yrs, and guests staying at our chalets can take advantage of our 2 special offers on selected weeks: Buy 2 adult Paradiski passes, get one child pass free, and a free upgrade to a Paradiski pass.

Brand New Ice-rink in Les Coches
So new that it is still being built, this season sees a brand new, outdoor ice skating rink in the centre of Les Coches. Located right in front of the La Poze terrace and opposite the Plan Bois chairlift, it will be open every afternoon and evening.
Airboard - bodyboard down the piste!
Another apres-ski activity to hit Les Coches is the crazy and fun Airboard - basically an inflatable, high-tech bodyboard. Once you've taken the last lift up and the piste is closed, you slide down the snow on this bodyboard. Mind those trees though!
Get on yer Fatbike!
How cool is this? Once the pistes around Montchavin Les Coches are closed, you can now rent a ‘Fatbike’ this coming ski season – a mountain bike with very wide and underinflated tyres, which is perfect on the snow. Under the guidance of Evolution2 instructors, you get fully kitted up and take the last lift up to the top of Plan Bois. Then you can speed down the groomed run back to Les Coches or Montchavin. The bikes will be fitted with lights so you’ll find your way down at dusk. Contact us for prices & more information.
Zip it up!
A series of zip wires have been installed, which run from Belle Plagne to Plagne Bellecote, complete with nets, wooden bridges and at the end, a 9-metre base jump.
It's gonna be YUGE
A new Paradiski app called YUGE will be launched this December, which will be personalised for each user. It will give you recommendations such as where to ski today to get the sun; what apres-ski is open near you; what's the best route for your ability (just go down the black after a few vin chauds!); as well as giving you up-to-date and accurate information on conditions such as the forecast, the snow and waiting times at various ski lifts around resort. We're looking forward to trying it out!
New Eurostar Service to Lyon
As well as being able to get the overnight or day train direct to Bourg St Maurice (20 mins away from our chalets), guests can now use a brand new, super fast, train service from London St Pancras to Lyon. The beauty of it is that it only takes 4hrs 41mins, goes on a Saturday and gets you to Lyon at 13:00 and it's certainly greener than flying. From there, we can organise a transfer to resort. What's more, it starts from just £89 return. More information available on the Eurostar website.
Chalet Epicea, our original chalet sleeping 13, is being totally renovated this summer and autumn and therefore will not be available for the Winter Ski Season 2015/16. When it is finished, it will be amazing with updated and contemporary bedrooms and bathrooms; huge windows in the lounge; and a new kitchen. Watch this space for more news!
Motor Sportive Day - 28 June 2015
If you're missing Jeremy Clarkson on TV, then you won't want to miss the 5th Motor Sportive Day, where an enormous number of super cars and sports cars are driven up to Les Coches for the day. The road is then closed between Montchavin and Les Coches and punters can pay to be driven between the 2 resorts in a car of their dreams. It's fast, noisy and there are lots of hairpins. All the big boys will be there - Ferrari, Mclaren, Porsche, Lamborhini, Lotus, KTM, BMW etc. More information on www.motorsportiveday.com
Summer Season Dates
The season kicks off on 27th June - 30th August 2015. Mountain-biking, hiking, paragliding, climbing, canyoning, swimming or just chillaxing - Les Coches has it all! Get in touch for summer self-catering prices at Chalet Pisteside.
