d'Isère sound the charge. The slopes will be opened by the end of
November for snow lovers preview descents. Ready? Set? Go!
Mountains in winter, means ski and every kind of snow sports,
a lot of ski, but not only ski. In Les Arcs, one makes one's first
track of the season, but at night, one can go to the cinema to attend

In the heart of one of the most beautiful skiable domain in the world,
more than ten thousand spectators are expected to attend about one
hundred and twenty shows, in the presence of more than five hundred
guests from the world of cinema.
Five great European films will be presented in preview
and ten full-length films will be in official competition to receive
the Crystal arrow. One will also be able to see European films which
have won prizes in their own country. Off, there will be evenings,
animations, concerts and DJ's at the decks. One exceptionnal week!
In Tignes and Val d'Isère, the glacier of La Grande Motte has closed hardly one month. On the Espace Killy, one can ski before and after everyone!
Lovers of charming resorts, on ski, will explore the
bottom of the giant Paradiski valley by discovering Landry, Peisey,
Nancroix, Vallandry and Plan-Peisey, the Savoyard villages which
cultivate the alpine lifestyle on the sunny side of the Arcs range.
There is something for everyone's' tastes.
