Les Arcs ski resort is an atypical resort that faces Mont Blanc and overlooks the Upper Tarentaise Valley. This openness provides a 360° panorama. Its South-Easterly orientation is synonymous with sunshine and breathtaking sunsets over the surrounding summits.

An area where renowned athletes can perform, this playground with its unequalled variety can guarantee you some wonderful memories!

Its 4 high altitude, car-free and "ski-to-the-door" villages (Arc 2000, Arc 1950, Arc 1800 & Arc 1600)all enjoy their own style, which you can discover at will...

An integral part of Paradiski, the 2nd largest inter-linked ski area in the world, more than 70% of Les Arcs' pistes are above 2000m, a variety of situations that can provide "all-weather" skiing for abilities on "pistes Natur'" and forest slopes...and fun zones!

Let us know what you think about the resort to even further enhance the quality of your welcome, your information and your guidance inside the resort.

We chose to go to Les Arcs in March as some of the family were beginners and the resort is excellent for these. We drove there with the drive up the mountain clear in late March (but we had snow chains in case). We had pre-booked parking (show booking at the barrier at the entrance to the resort). We stayed...

took a chance a the end of the season, perfect resort for families, great collection of runs for all levels, only disappointment was the lack of decent food shopping ( next time will buy what we need in bourg) Go to 1800 for night life, 1950 is pretty and don't believe the reviews about 2000 its not buzzing ,but has...

Three of us visited les arcs, Saint Foy, Val d'isere and Tignes and la Rosiere as part of a snowboarding road trip. We all felt that Les Arcs was slightly dissapointing. Ok, our boards had all had a hard trip and we're starting to run slow and it was spring snow, but there seemed to be lots of flat bits... More

les arcs is part of the huge paradiski area, just returned from a week, although eastern we had nice snow, one thing that can be improved is the ski lift system which is quite old and slow good connection to la plagne

We chose Les Arcs 2000 for good weather, great piste, long intermediate runs and small or non-existent queues for gondola/chair lift. It fulfilled all these requirements in abundance. As a late booking there wasn't much accommodation left. We stayed in Chalet Veronique as a Crystal Holidays booking. The chalet was not their smartest but, the chalet hosts Michael and David...

This is definitely a resort for intermediate and above skiers. No much for beginners even the blues are not easy and there are no greens in Arc 2000. We went the last week of the season and lots of snow still around and falling which curtailed skiing on a couple of days. End of the week skiing was a bit... More

The lifts seem to be pretty old and slow in general, but the skiing area is attractive. There's varied terrain but not many very long runs. I took one day at La Plagne also and found the area better.

Really fantastic skiing, loads of runs for all abilities and big variation in scenery and surfaces. Lots of lifts in good order and great links from one range to another to keep you active and interested all day. Stayed in 2000 but would return to 1950 as better atmosphere and seemingly more going on - a proper alpine setting with... More

Les Arcs 1800 is a nice cosy resort with enough night life(no disco) for people that like to ski all day!! Loads of blues and reds, not as busy as other big resorts. If the weather is good, crossing to La Plagne is advise. Also good for snowboarders,, lots of off piste too!!
