St. Jean d'Arves

St. Jean d’Arves is a fantastic ski holiday option, and it is no wonder why it is steadily becoming one of the most popular destinations in France. Just like the other villages in Les Sybelles, St. Jean d'Arves is typically French. In the past few seasons there have been several new accommodations constructed in the village that are walking distance to both the ski slopes and lifts.

Skiing in St. Jean d’Arves

St. Jean d’Arves is part of the large Les Sybelles ski area. This also includes the resorts La Toussuire, Le Corbier and St. Sorlin d’Arves. The area has over 310km of ski slopes, comprised mostly of red and blue runs. This means that it is well suited for intermediate skier/snowboarders. For cross country skiers there is also around 42km of different trails.

The Resort

The resort itself has many great restaurants, and après ski bars with sunny terraces. For those who like to pamper themselves, there is a free bus that runs to the nearby St. Sorlin d’Arves which has a large spa centre. There are also more bar options here for party animals.

Sunweb has a great assortment of ski accommodation packages in St. Jean d’Arves. From all inclusive hotels to simple, affordable apartments there are options to suit all budgets and group sizes.

Les Sybelles

The vast resort of Les Sybelles is gaining in popularity with skiers and snowboarders. The excellent variety of options provided in this resort with 310 km (193 ml) of pistes justify its popularity.
 
 
The ski area consists of the villages of Le Corbier, St. Jean d'Arves, Les Bottières, La Toussuire, St. Sorlin d'Arves and St. Colomban des Villards. This large and diverse area has plenty of pistes for novices as well as advanced skiers and snowboarders. For the very advanced skiers and snowboarders there are plenty of black piste descents and the real fanatics can conquer the off piste trails! However we strongly advise you to do this in the company of an experienced guide.

The most challenging descents can be found in the resort of St. Sorlin d'Arves. Snowboarders and freestyle skiers can head for the snow parks in le Corbier and La Toussuire. The lift pass for the entire area is included in the price of the holiday.

 

Attention: the 6-day skipass Les Sybelles is included. If you book before 1st of October 2013, you will get the 7th day for free.

Les Sybelles

  • Excellent location in Alps
  • Sun all afternoon
  • Wide and well-groomed slopes
