So what's it like?
A wonderful modern ski resort filled with inspiring skiing
Les Arcs offers modern accommodation and some awe-inspiring skiing. Slopes vary from wooded runs to high altitude skiing on the glacier. Skiing opportunities do not end in Les Arc as you can explore the whole of La Plagne and the massive 'Paradiski' area with 425km of pistes! Our accommodation is found in 5 villages: Arc 1800 with its lively atmosphere, Arc 2000 with skiing to and from the doorstep, Arc 1600 with its village atmosphere, newly built but traditionally styled Arc 1950 and Peisey-Vallandry, closest to La Plagne giving speedy access to the whole of Paradiski.
Home of the famous 'Ski Evolutif' teaching method (mini-skis for learning to start, stop and turn), Les Arcs is a great choice for beginners.
The Paradiski Area is brilliant for intermediates. Runs include tree-lined descents into Pèisey Nancroix and Vallandry and a multitude of interlinked blue and red runs.
Ski the breathtaking 7km black Aiguille Rouge right the way down into Villaroger (Europe's biggest vertical drop of 2000m!), pound the moguls of Dou de l'Homme or take the new Vanoise Express lift, which carrys 200 people over to La Plagne and return off-piste through the imposing Nancroix forest.
