Welcome to Les Arcs Ski Resort

One destination, five resorts, 425km of slopes – Les Arcs offers an unrivalled diversity of pistes for all levels. They range from glacier skiing to forest descents and go from 3,226m to 1,200m in altitude, so you’ll never worry about lack of snow. One of the big pluses for beginners is the fact that many of the easy angled blue runs can be found up high, with views across to Mt Blanc. Les Arcs is part of the Paradiski area that links with Peisey-Vallandry and La Plagne and thanks to the practical ski-in ski-out layout of many hotels, it’s a popular resort for families with a lively après scene for the party crowd in Arc 1800 - with a more chilled vibe in the other villages.

Best time to ski in Les Arcs

Being a well-organised purpose built resort with modern lifts and a good snow-making infrastructure, Les Arcs is one of those places that can handle the masses, meaning even in peak periods it doesn’t feel over-crowded. That means it’s a good bet for pre-Christmas and New Year as well as the February half term holidays. With skiing up to 3,000m, snow reliability is as good as anywhere you’ll find in the Alps, with the season lasting until the end of April, later than many other places.

Things to do in Les Arcs

Les Arcs is famous as the place where the sport of speed riding was born. This is where you launch yourself down the mountain with a parachute style wing, and you half ski, half fly down the mountain. Sounds terrifying but they run one-day taster sessions for novices very safely, you just need to be an intermediate skier. Otherwise Les Arcs offers dog sledding, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing – and some great bars and clubs to party the night away. Head to Les Arcs 1800 for the best après – you’ll even find a branch of the well known dance-on-the-tables haunt, La Folie Douce.
