    Beginners ski-passes

    Multi-trip passes
    If you're learning to ski, there are a couple of lift pass offers where you can buy 1, 2, 3, 5 or 10 trips on the lifts, so you don't have to spend money on a ski pass for the whole week. This applies to the Combettes chair lift in 1600, the Villards chairlift in 1800, the Saint Jacques chairlift in 2000 and the Parchey lift in Peisey-Vallandry. 

    Peisey-Vallandry area only
    If you're staying in Peisey Vallandry, you can buy a 1-day pass which gives you access to the Flocon and Cabri beginner ski areas. From Vallandry you can get 2 journeys on the Vallandry chairlift and unlimited use of the Flocon J-bar lift. From Peisey you can get 2 journeys on the Peisey chairlift and unlimited use of the Cabri J-bar lift.

    Restricted Area Passes
    If you're still pretty new to skiing then it is also possible to buy 1-day passes just for the lifts in certain parts of the ski area; EG. Arc 1600 + Arc 1800 (except Transarc 1 & 2), Arc 2000 + Villaroger (except Varet, Aiguille Rouge & Grand Col lifts), Villaroger on its own and Peisey-Vallandry (where you can also get a 6-day pass). So, if you just want to practice your turns for a bit on some of the resorts more gentle slopes, this pass might suit you best.

    Ski schools and lessons
    If you are a complete beginner, then it is likely that you will be joining a ski school for most of your stay so it is worth discussing with them which pass option is best suited for their beginner groups. There are sometimes also special deals available on lift passes when bought in conjunction with lessons, so it’s always worth asking.

    Snowpark passes

    Access to the snowparks in Les Arcs is included in your local area pass. If you'd like to try out the snowparks in La Plagne as well, you'll need to buy a Paradiski Pass.
