Chalet Tarine is situated in a south facing Tarentaise village overlooking the ski resort 'LES ARCS'. The bottom of the 'LES ARCS' funicular is in Bourg Saint Maurice, a 10-12 minute drive from the Chalet (6km). This is where you park and buy your ski pass and begin and end your days skiing.
The funicular takes 7 minutes and at its summit is 'Arc 1600' , from where you can ski the huge Les Arcs ski area, this includes Villaroger, Peisey-Vallandry, Arc 1800, Arc 1950, and Arc 2000. There is a very convenient British run ski and snowboard rental shop directly next to the Bourg St Maurice funicular and car park.
Les Arcs is easily big enough to keep you busy all week, but the extraordinary double decker Vanoise Express cable car connects Les Arcs directly to the 10 resorts and villages that form the vast 'LA PLAGNE' ski area.
'Les Arcs' and 'La Plagne' form an amazing ski area 'PARADISKI,' with 425km of piste served by 187 lifts transporting up to 210,000 people per hour making it one of the two largest ski areas in the world.
