Les Arcs

A purpose-built resort made up of 4 villages at different altitudes, Les Arcs offers stunning views across the valley to Mont Blanc. The resort can seem dominated by tall apartment complexes but the friendly locals and car-free streets help to give it a fantastic atmosphere all year round.

Les Arcs Ski LiftArc 2000 is the highest of the villages and has the quickest access to the higher and more demanding skiing in the area. Just below that is Arc 1950, which is conveniently arranged and pleasantly built in a traditional style. Arc 1800 is the largest and the liveliest of the villages and features the majority of the amenities within the resort. Sitting lower down the valley and connected by a funicular train to the town of Bourg St Maurice at the bottom of the mountain is Arc 1600. All the villages have everything you would need on a ski holiday and offer fast and easy access to the slopes.

Les Arcs has some rewarding local skiing featuring long descents, steep slopes and excellent tree-lined runs. It’s major advantage though is being part of the extensive Paradiski area which opens up access to some of the most varied on and off-piste skiing in the world. The fast cable car link with La Plagne is the best way to start exploring the broader area.

Les Arcs and the Paradiski feature varied terrain with a good percentage of high, snow-sure slopes above 2000m, as well as low-level woodland runs. There are a host of blue runs for beginners, and all the main routes have both easy and difficult alternatives which make it an ideal resort for mixed-ability groups. It has also become a hot spot for snowboarders with excellent free-riding options and one of the best snow-parks in the region.
