- Mix of high altitude and tree-lined skiing.
- Large terrain park good for all abilities.
Renowned for everything from wooded beginner runs to high-altitude skiing, variety is behind the enduring popularity of Les Arcs. Linked with La Plagne to create the Paradiski area, there are 425km of piste for all abilities. With 70% of the skiing over 2000m, snow conditions are reliable throughout the season. Advanced skiers in the mood for something special should head up to the Aiguille Rouge for the exhilarating 2km descent to Villaroger. Alternatively above Arc 1600 there’s also a snow park ripe for hours of freestyle fun.
Our accommodation in Les Arcs can be found in five villages. The buzzing Arc 1800 is where you’ll find the après ski crowd, while nearby Arc 1600 offers more of a village environment. In Arc 2000 you can ski to and from your doorstep and if newly-built but traditional style is more your thing, then Arc 1950 is a great choice. Lastly, Peisey-Vallandry is closest to La Plagne and offers you speedy access to the whole of Paradiski.
Les Arcs is all about variety. When the clouds roll in, head over to Peisey-Vallandry for elegant tree-lined runs, as well as access to the Vanoise Express. This 200-person double-decker cable car crosses the 2km valley to La Plagne in just four minutes - an experience in itself.
