Resort Information - Les Arcs

e
 

Les Arcs is a purpose-built resort and part of the Paradiski area, linked to La Plagne with mostly apartment based accommodation in high rise blocks.  There are three main villages - Arcs 1800, Arcs 1600 and Arcs 2000 plus the recent addition of Arcs 1950 - all the villages are linked by road and Arcs 1600 connects with the valley town of Bourg St Maurice by funiculare railway.  Most accommodation is on or close to the pistes and Arcs 1800 is by far the most popular destination with the most facilities.

The skiing here is great for all standards of skiers and snowboarders and most areas have easy and difficult alternative pistes making it a good choice for mixed ability groups.  For experts, there are some good off piste areas and some challenging black runs from the Aiguille Rouge whilst for beginners there are a number of dedicated beginner areas in each of the villages.  Linked to La Plagne to create the Paradiski domain, it has more than 400km of pistes on offer.  A high percentage of the runs are above 2000m in height making it snow secure although many runs are west facing so not as great as they could be in times of poor snow cover.

For nightlife, the best choice is Arcs 1800 which has a large number of bars and restaurants including some open until the earl hours of the morning.  All the villages have a choice of alternatives varying from noisy to tranquil with many offering live music and late night opening but the liveliest place is Arcs 1800.
