Nearly 2,500 of you confirmed your status as Nirvanalps Premium clients during the winter of 2011. The object of setting up this programme aimed at property owners in les Arcs, Peisey- Vallandry and Villaroger was to make it easier for you to access the range of products and services reserved for you. Many of you have let us know how satisfied you are but have also told us what you think is needed to improve it. The 3A association has enabled us to improve the Nirvanalps service. I invite you to discover these improvements in the pages of this guide. Moreover, more than ever, we consider that through your knowledge of and attachment to the ski area we share, you are in the best position to help us make progress! It is up to us to create meeting places, virtual or otherwise, where we can exchange views, get to know each other better and move forward together. You can count on us and we will see you soon! Meanwhile, on behalf of the ADS teams, I wish you a great winter season. Laurent Chelle General manager ADS

550 employees

Since 1st February 2011 ADS has relied fully on the specialist strengths and skills of the two companies, SMA and STAG, led by performance objectives and by a major strategy development founded on a QSE (Quality Safety Environment) initiative and stated values.

at the service of our clients

In an updated environment, the stakes are clear - establishing ourselves as a leading company in the Alps and to ensure our clientele enjoys to the highest level the pleasures of the slopes and high altitude leisure sports.

Our NEW LOGO The raised and offset A is deliberately made to stand out mis en exergue; it reflects the “premium”concept, “top style”. It evokes the values of excellence, exemplarity and leadership.


➜ Making accessible an area that is extraordinary by nature and dedicated to the pleasures of the slopes and high altitude leisure.

➜ The mountain pictogram is the graphic element that echoes the mountains, our domain.

Agement iDées, ovAtion ticipAtive





QuALité De vie et sécurité Au trAvAiL

The continuous line that describes the A and links the more curved shapes of the D and the S reflects the mountains, the slopes, their outlines and evokes the values of agility and innovation which characterise the approach of our profession

➜ This logo represents our company’s new name but is not intended to replace the

logos of the resorts of Les Arcs, Peisey-Vallandry or Villaroger or the logo of our PARADISKI area. 05

New project for the Chantel area:

An area that’s up to the job in both winter and summer

The creation of more than 1 500 beds in le Chantel (EdenArc project) has caused us to rethink the whole of Arc 1800’s “snow front”. The current layout is not satisfactory in terms of traffic and available spaces. We have set ourselves the target of injecting new life into the activities in Arc 1800 by 2014, establishing a leisure area on the “snow front” able to cater for the following facilities: beginner and gentle skiing areas, toboggan/play area available in the evenings, catering and services centre, group and seminar area...



Installation of 3 pairs of panoramic binoculars:

Opening dates of the ski areas • Paradiski: from 17/12/2011 to 21/04/2012

Top of the 2300 chairlift in Peisey-Vallandry - Top of the Aiguille Rouge cable car - Top of the Arpette chairlift.

• Les Arcs/Peisey-Vallandry: from 10/12/2011 to 21/04/2012 • Arc 1950 and Arc 2000: from 10/12/2011 to 28/04/2012

Installed on panoramic sites, these binoculars will enable you to admire our area’s finest views free of charge.

New 6-seater declutchable Mont Blanc chairlift (2,700 pers./hour) For an optimum reorganisation of the movement of skiers at the top of the funicular and on Arc 1600’s “snow front”.

IF YOU LET YOUR PROPERTY THROUGH A PROFESSIONAL. You can benefit from vouchers for your lift pass purchases! The principle

How to benefit?

If you offer your property for rental through an estate agent (for at least 13 weeks during the winter) or via an accommodation provider, you will get a book of vouchers entitling you to reductions on your lift pass purchases. The book of vouchers includes a voucher for a 30% reduction and two vouchers for 15% reductions, redeemable against the purchase of lift passes of 1 to 15 days at the public price (up to a limit of 8 lift passes per transaction except family pack). Vouchers are not cumulative with each other or other promotions.

To get your book of vouchers, all you have to do is go to and set up your account free of charge. Then register the apartment you own via your account attaching proof of ownership. You must also indicate to which professional (estate agency or accommodation provider) you have entrusted the letting of your property (it is a matter of weeks made available for let rather than weeks actually let). Once our team has approved the apartment and the professional has confirmed the contract, you can come and collect your book of vouchers from one of our sales points or from the Altitude Lounge in Arc 1800!

Benefit N°4: Skiing à la carte!

If you ski between 8 and 20 days per year and you are looking for liberty, then take advantage of the Zen 2.0, card, our Ski à la carte package. A new way of making the most of your season and collecting benefits:
