Les Arcs Destination Guide
Villages At Alltitude!
Les Arcs is an incredibly popular ski area that, put quite simply, is both convenient and vast. Since the opening of the amazing double-decker Vanoise Express cable car, Les Arcs links to La Plagne to create the huge Paradiski Ski area.
Les Arcs is actually made up of purpose-built mini resorts coupled with traditional villages and towns on the outskirts. The market town of Bourg St Maurice is at the bottom of the valley and is linked directly to the first ski area of Arc 1600 by the efficient 'Arc en Ciel' funicular that whisks you the mile up to resort in just seven minutes.
Arc 1600 first opened in 1968 and is the smallest of the Arcs resorts, yet is still pretty snow sure and has all its own facilities. Winding further up the road you come to Arc 1800. This is the largest development in Les Arcs and, if you're an architecture fan, you'll see the likeness of the cubic style to that of legendary architect Corbusier. Arc 1800 is divided into four areas, namely Charvet, Villards, Charmettoger and Chantel.
The buildings in Arc 1800 might not be to your taste, but it's SO well-planned. Access to lifts and pistes is easy, it's truly ski in, ski out and there are loads of shops, bars, restaurants and leisure facilities for you.
Further over towards the east side of the resort, Arc 1950 sets a very different tone. Deisgned and built to resemble Whistler resort, it's the newest and most luxurious area in Les Arcs. Sitting just below Arc 2000 (which, like Arc 1800 is made up of apartment blocks in a seventies style) access to the pistes is superb and there's an even a free gondola lift (the Cabriolet) to link skiers and pedestrians direct to Arc 2000.
In Arc 2000 it's a different ball game. Completely self-sufficient with shops, cinema, bars and restaurants, this hamlet, which hosted speed skiing in the 1992 Winter Olympics, is definitely one for the serious skiers. The climate can be quite wild and at 2000m altitude you'll be walking in snow all season, but this does mean the best access to the pistes and the legendary Aiguille Rouge area.
If you're looking for a more authentic holiday experience in the Les Arcs area, you can look to stay in Villaroger, Vallandry or Plan Peisey, which are villages on the extremities of Les Arcs, but still offering easy access to the domain.
The icing on the cake with Les Arcs is the fact that it's so convenient. An ultra-modern lift system with very few drag lifts (we can hear snowboarders breathe a sigh of relief!), truly ski in/ski out accommodation everywhere, wide open motorway pistes, excellent snow parks and plenty of hidden off piste to devour too.
So where's the catch? The only thing that grates with us is the fact that Les Arcs is a closed ski resort. By that we mean that as soon as you arrive at Arc 1800, you have to go through the 'Porte de Station' entrance area to get into Arc 1800, 1950 and 2000.
This means you are obliged to pay for parking, whether it's on the side of the road or in a municipal underground car park. Rates for a week are anything from 65 to 80€, which is another cost to bear in mind. Some residences and hotels have their own private parking, but guests still have to head to the welcome chalet to get their parking validated.
So our advice is to leave the car and either head directly from Geneva airport, Lyon airport or Grenoble airports on a private airport transfer to Les Arcs, or even use the train to Bourg St Maurice and then the Arc en Ciel funicular. Once in Les Arcs, there are shuttle buses between resorts from 07:30 to 21:00 each day. Easy.
