France, Paradiski Ski Area
Ski Les Arcs! There’s an astonishing variety of skiing in Les Arcs, with long cruising runs, great off-piste, and one of the longest and most challenging runs in the Alps which takes advanced skiers seven kilometres all the way down to Villaroger, a magnificent vertical descent of 7,500 feet. No fewer than 84 of the resort’s runs can be enjoyed by intermediate skiers. Les Arcs has acres of good cruising, but its off-piste opportunities are exceptional. Its vast ski reserve combines a great snow record with sumptuous north facing snow fields. The impressive Vanoise Express cable car provides easy access to a further 225 kms of pistes in neighbouring La Plagne. Choose between three bases: Arc 1800 has a new activity area (Mille 8) comprising of an aquatic centre, toboggan run, fun trails, beginner's area and children's practice area, (you can view a plan of Mille8 here). Combined with a good selection of shops and restaurants this only adds to its popularity as a firm favourite with families and beginners. Intermediate and advanced skiers are attracted to Arc 2000 with its proximity to the Aiguille Rouge glacier and fantastic doorstep skiing. The most recent addition, Arc 1950, is a stunning and pedestrianised village with excellent restaurants, bars, shops and a spa plus good access to the slopes whilst offering the best of luxury accommodation.
