Skiing in Les Arcs
Well renowned for its fantastic variety – woodland, rolling terrain, blacks runs, parks and off piste, Les Arcs caters for most tastes.
It is mostly high altitude skiing on the Glacier du Varet and with a large proportion of piste above 2000m, reliable conditions throughout the season are to be expected.
As part of the Paradiski area there are 425km of runs on offer. Les Arcs alone (excluding La Plagne) has 200km of skiable piste and over 52 lifts, meaning some may not even need to explore neighbouring resorts. There are some great beginner areas, with gentle terrain for all the family to learn on. But Les Arcs is perhaps best suited to intermediate and advanced skiers and boarders wanting to tackle the highs of the Aiguille Rouge, where plentiful bowls and couloirs are open to those daring enough to try – of course a guide is always necessary when going off piste.
It’s link over to La Plagne is made with the Vanoise Express, this record breaking double decker lift takes around 4 minutes and carries over 200 people, making the connection easy and fast.
Les Arcs has a colourful history closely associated with the development and nurturing of snowboarding as a sport, which means that the terrain park, ‘Apocalypse’ (named after the famous 80’s snowboarding movie, also filmed in Les Arcs by local enthusiasts) offers a great range of freestyle terrain, kickers, boxes, rails, jumps and even an airbag, making it a destination for those wanting to develop their skills and style.

More Information about Les Arcs
Les Arcs is a purpose built resort just above the French town of Bourg St Maurice. It has become one of the most popular resorts in the Alps due to its focus on convenience, and good value accommodation. Along with its ski-in ski-out accommodation options and its re-vamped access to the La Plagne (which makes up the other half of the Paradiski area) Les Arcs has been, and still is, a huge hit with international and French skiers.
There are several villages that make up Les Arcs. All of the resorts are car free and offer a plethora of apartments most with direct piste access.
Set high in the valley, Les Arcs 1950 was built by the same architects famous for their work in the American and Canadian resorts of Squaw Valley, Steam Boat and Whistler. Although the resorts are all purpose built, one of the main aims of the architect was to respect the natural beauty of the land so the apartment buildings blend nicely into the surroundings.
The six villages in Les Arcs, named after their altitudes (albeit a slight inaccurate approach given Arcs 2000 is actually over 2100m!) consist of Arc 2000, Arc 1950, Arc 1800, Arc 1600, Peisey-Vallandry and Villaroger. With Arcs 1950 offering the most versatile accommodation and skiing, this is where most of the action happens making it largely the most popular of the 6, although it is said that Arc 1800 has the most buzzing nightlife, so it really depends what you are looking for. The lower down villages tend to have more chalets with traditional quieter atmospheres.
As always the resort has plenty to do in the way of shopping, ski schools, nightclubs, and activity centres such as the ‘Millle8’ Aquatic and sports centre, or the Deep Nature Spa at 1950, if you fancy (or need) a little break from all the skiing.
