Les Arcs

Reinventing an old favourite

Les Arcs is making a comeback. In its web of many villages, it offers 10km glacier-descents and an expansive network of Green and Blue runs. From high altitude to the lower valleys, Bourg Saint Maurice to 1600, 1800, 1950 and Les Arcs 2000, each has its own unique feel. Home to ‘ski evolutif’ teaching methods and an Olympic speed skiing course, it stands out from the rest as an accomplished location with new twists at every turn.

The Regis Roland 'A Boards' team snowpark is as good as it gets. The ski area is excellent for beginners with very good schools, and plenty of child-friendly facilities. The ski-to-door location of most accommodation in Les Arcs is a bonus for beginners and families, with walking kept to a bare minimum. Après ski is low key with less bars and restaurants, but the night awaits at neighbouring La Plagne…

  • Highest Lift at 3250m

  • 37 Black Runs

About Les Arcs

Snow sure, high altitude slopes - the domain is the 4th largest ski area in France. Les Arcs ski resort is now linked with La Plagne to form the Paradiski area.

Why we love Les Arcs!

Les Arcs offers an amazing array of on and off piste runs right across the skill spectrum.

Advanced skiers can enjoy the cahallenge of the 20 to 30 minute long Black descent from the Glacier 8 mile down to the base at Villaroger. On top of a testing mogul field there is some fantastic off piste in the area.

The easier cruising runs favoured by intermediates circuit the resort, and allow for day trips to the other side of the Paradiski at La Plagne. It is very easy, and highly enjoyable, to cover a great distance each day.

The resort of Les Arcs also has solid roots in Snowboard history. It is the home-resort of many Pro's and from where the Regis Roland A Boards team originated. Regis Rolland is a name which many snowboarders should know.

An Avoriaz local, Apocalypse and A Snowboards founder/designer, a true snowboarding pioneer who designed the Snow Park and Half Pipe in the resort.

The natural Freeriding terrain found all over the mountain will put a smile on your face, whether airborne or cruise the pistes.

The open powder fields around Les Arcs 2000m are especially good in the morning, and well worth searching out for plenty of enjoyably effortless powder turns and that floating feeling - you'll be reaching for a swallowtail powder machine before you know it!

The Snowpark

The Snow park is very well kept and alot of thought and effort has gone into its huge array of jumps and hand rails, baby rails and small learner jumps.

Les Arcs was at the dawn of European snowboarding history, and remains a favoured place to ride, being the base for many pro-riders during the season. It has incredible variety from the mellow beginner slopes to some of the most challenging runs anywhere in France.

The main point about Les Arcs is that it has something for everyone, and is a safe bet to suit all tastes.

For Beginners

The excellent network of beginner runs all over the resort help make Les Arcs is a great place to learn to ski or board. English speaking snowboard schools are of uniformly good quality, further helping to speed up the learning process. The slopes are very well maintained, and the children’s facilities second to none!

For Intermediates and Advanced

A long-term favourite amongst skiers and boarders, Les Arcs has increased further in popularity in recent years, due to the addition of the Vanoise Express cable car linking the ski area with neighbouring La Plagne to form the huge Paradiski Area.

This is now the fourth largest ski area in Europe, consisting of seventeen alpine villages and over 460 km of pisted runs, ensuring that your ski holiday can be as adventurous (or as gentle) as you want!

Around Les Arcs

Les Arcs offers something for all, with more hedonistic night-life and apres ski venues up at the top end of Arcs 2000, whilst the new Arcs 1950 (accessed by carousel or a 10 min walk from our chalets) offers more chic and trendy restaurants.

Les Arcs 2000 is a new ski village with pretty chalet-style buildings, convenience skiing and boarding and afriendly atmosphere.

It has been designed for skiers and boarders in mind - rather than having sprouted up from a traditional alpine village, like so many awkward ski resorts. It therefore has everything that you will want, and very close to hand!
