Les Arcs is a family-friendly resort with loads of ski-in-ski-out accommodation, a variety of villages to choose from and over 210km of pistes to ski. It’s no wonder it’s one of the most popular resorts in the French Alps. Situated in the Paradiski area, this expansive resort offers a vast array of runs for all levels of skiers and boarders. Beautiful open pistes surround Les Arcs 2000 and 1950, in contrast to the tree-lined pistes in Les Arcs 1800, 1600 and Vallandry.
Les Arcs 2000 is compact and great for families (although it actually sits at 2100m, not 2000!). Whereas Vallandry has more of an old mountain village feel with traditional-style chalet buildings. It’s quieter than some other resorts in the Alps, although a good party can be found in Arc 1800, the largest of all the villages.
Les Arcs is renowned as an intermediate’s paradise due to the high number of blues runs across the valley. However, that said, there is a variety of pistes and you’ll find everything across the different levels and resorts within Les Arcs. And with the Vanoise Express linking the resort up to La Plagne and the rest of the Paradiski’s 425kms of pistes, there’s plenty to keep you busy!
