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.

Perfect ski area, with beautiful groomed pistes and many choices. The lifts were fast (we dliberately avoided Pre St Esprit) and the queues resolved quickly. We chose Les Arcs 2000 due to the late period, in 1950 hotels/flats were more expensive and they use the same lifts to get to the Arcs 2000 bowl. We enjoyed the local blue and... More

We spent a month here from early March 2017 and enjoyed some great skiing on the blue and red runs. The blacks were very bumpy and towards the end of the month many of them were shut. We stayed in our camper van at a campsite in Bourg St Maurice and took the funicular to Arc 1600 and then skied... More

I stayed in March. we were unlucky to experience a day, where the entire resort was closed due to snowfall and very strong wind. But this was entirely justified, the conditions were dangerous. But all the fresh snow meant that we had a fantastic rest of the week. The lifts are good, fast,enough to ensure there are no long queues,... More

This was our first ski holiday and we were (are) absolute beginners. the lessons were booked via Club Med at Les Arc 2000. The first lesson consisted of walking on skis and skiing down wide slopes which were not steep. We also used rope lifts and a moving carpet travellator. For the second lesson we returned to one of the... More

Everything is made here for you to spend your money - from the toll on the road (to prevent the cars in the resort" to the parking lot downhill for people to leave their car and use public transport.. ski passes over expensive and huge crowds on the slops - not really allowing you to enjoy.

Just had a superb long weekend with my oldest friends skiing in Les Arcs. It was -8C at Arc 1600 with no morning sun, so we nipped straight up Arpette and slid down to Arcabulle on the 1950/2000 side. Despite being -22C the sun was out and most welcoming, so we went large down the Arcabulle reds, froze on the... More

There is so much choice in Les Arcs which is part of the Paradiski ski area, linked to La Plagne. The snow was pretty good up high and the runs down were well served with snow cannons. Even though only 50% of the runs were open, they were well maintained. There is a wide variety of places to stay in... More

If you're in la Plagne, a must do is to do a day visit to Les Arcs. A day lift pass is usually included in the La Plagne lift pass and there a super fast gondola connection between the 2 resorts.
