Les Arcs

Skiing in Les Arcs

A benchmark ski resort in Savoie, France: Les Arcs offers holidaymakers five sites: Arc 1600, Arc 1800, Arc 1950, Arc 2000 and Bourg-Saint-Maurice. Les Arcs is part of the large ski area Paradiski. This area connects a number of different resorts including La Plagne, Les Coches and Montchavin. Combined they have over 400km of ski piste to explore.

When choosing a Les Arcs ski holiday there are four different villages to pick form: Arc 1600, Arc 1800, Arc 1950 and Arc 2000. All four villages are car free. Arc 1800 and Arc 1950 are widely regarded as the liveliest of the four thanks to the many terraces, restaurants and shops.

Arc 1600

This is the oldest and smallest village of the four. The village predominantly attracts families with small children because the village is compact, flat and car free. The mountain train from Bourg St. Maurice and Les Arcs stops here along the way as well.

Arc 1800

This is the largest village of the four and there is plenty to keep you entertained here. In terms of après-ski, this is the village of preference for most young visitors. The village consists of buildings located close to the pistes as well as some smaller wooden buildings in between the trees.

Arc 1950

Arc 1950 is a very atmospheric ski village and was built in 2003 in the Canadian Whistler construction style. Quality, service and luxury are the defining features of Arc 1950. The lively centre has excellent restaurants, a few bars, a supermarket, a baker and various shops. If you want to visit the highest village of Les Arcs you can use the Cabriolet lift. This will swiftly take you up to Arc 2000.

Arc 2000

This is the highest village of Les Arcs, and is ideal for the ski and snowboard enthusiasts. It is a small village with a limited number of restaurants, bars and shops. Arc 2000 is renowned for speed skiing. Well trained skiers can try out the various black descents down the Aiguille Rouge.

Mile 8

In the heart of Les Arc 1800 is the new snow park Mille 8. This fantastic winter snow park is sure to give you an adrenaline rush! It features a toboggan run, a forest themed slope, a freestyle obstacle course and a special area for beginners and children.

Les Arcs/Peisey-Vallandry

The villages of Les Arcs and Peisey-Vallandry together form a ski resort which is part of the great Paradiski area. Les Arcs/Peisey-Vallandry has a total of 106 pistes in a 200km area.

Skiing in Les Arcs/Peisey-Vallandry

The side of Les Arcs is know for being quite busy with a lot going on, however the side of Peisey-Vallandry is know for being more peaceful and quiet for skiers/snowboarders. Usually there are little to no queues for the ski lifts in this area. For beginners the lower part of Arc 1600 and 1800 are great areas to practice and learn the basics. For the more advanced skiers the Aiguille Rouge slope on the mountain of the same name is a must do. It is perhaps the most difficult slope within the whole of the Paradiski area. As most of the slopes in the area are above 1800m, it is very snow sure.

Snowpark Mille8

In the heart of Les Arcs 1800, the snowpark Mille8 has opened its doors. The snowpark is nestled in a beautiful area in the Paradiski ski area. At the park you will find an exciting toboggan run, forest theme trail and a freestyle trail with various obstacles.
