Resort guide to Montchavin - France

Excellent family ski resort close to the Paradiski link to Les Arcs


Montchavin resort guide - a general overview

Montchavin is a small, modern Savoyarde style village with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. The centre is largely traffic free and has a selection of shops, bars, restaurants and one night club. Being north facing, the snow is generally snow sure and the snow making is excellent here too. The village is an excellent base for both skiers and boarders to ski the whole of the 'Paradiski' area as it is located very close to the main lift link to Les Arcs. The main ski area of La Plagne is also very easy to get to.

A five star rated shop will offer great service and equipment but also will charge the highest price. Ski hire shops with a two star rating have less variety and older, poorer quality of stock but are cheapest.
