The Les Arcs-Vallandry Ski Area is Europe's first B-Corp-accredited ski resort. B-Corp evaluates a company's impact on the planet and people, and it is given to companies which meet high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and responsibility. The goal is to transform the global economy to benefit all individuals, communities, and the environment. As well as being B-Corp accredited, Les Arcs also have two Flocon Vert snowflakes, demonstrating the resorts commitment to environmental preservation, highlighting its dedication to sustainable development. The resort has done a number of things to achieve these accreditations including using more sustainable fuel in snow groomers and providing a car-free resort, plus all visitors who arrive by rail will also have free access to the funicular. With a new purchasing policy for the resort, almost 90% of its purchases are in the local Rhône-Alpes region. There has also been a focus on regreening the mountain area by planting trees and restoring wetland areas.

Beginners skiing and snowboarding in Les Arcs

The gentler slopes of Arc 1800 are a great choice for novice skiers and boarders with some lovely wide tree lined pistes, perfect for practising your turns and techniques.

Once you have built up your confidence, hop on the Transarc cable-car or the Arcabulle chair-lift to go between Arc 1800 and Arc 2000. In Arc 2000 there are also plenty of blue runs, which is a great area to progress to once you have gained more confidence. There are some gentle runs from the stop of the St Jacques chairlift, which are great for building your confidence.

Intermediates skiing and snowboarding in Les Arcs

Les Arcs, and the Paradiski area as a whole is ideal for intermediate skiers. The resort is both diverse and accessible, providing a mixture of routes that are easily explored. There is no reason why an intermediate skier or boarder cannot, comfortably visit every part of the mountain.

We highly recommend heading to the top of the Grizzly 68 chair where a network of red and blue runs criss-cross the woods back to Vallandry and Peisey.

You can easily cruise to Villaroger through the woods along the Vallée de L’Arc blue. Alternatively, follow the Aiguille Rouge red from the top of the Lanchettes chairlift, along the ridge of the mountain before dropping into the trees. An easier section of one of the most challenging runs in resort. 

Advanced skiing and snowboarding in Les Arcs

Expert skiers and boarders will love Les Arcs. The mountain provides incredible challenges both on and off the piste, making it a first class destination for advanced skiers. Arc 2000 offers the most black runs: the Robert Blanc, the Génépi and the Refuge, to name a few.

The ungroomed Natur’ runs are an incredible draw. Three of these massive mogul fields descend from the top of the Varet lift. The pistes are wide, but incredibly steep and bumpy. Enjoy the spectacular views from the top – because you won’t have time on the way down.

The steep run from the top of the Aiguille Rogue all the way to Villaroger is infamous. The narrow and often crowded start to the run takes you along a lengthy and varied route covering different types of terrain and descending 2000m across 7km.

The Flying Kilometre offers a terrifying challenge to all but the most hardened speed freaks. A steep, icy descent, pro-riders have been known to travel the length of this chute at speeds of 200kmph. If you’re up for it, you too can challenge the pros on supervised time trials.

Freestyle and terrain parks in Les Arcs

Les Arcs is an excellent destination for freestyle enthusiasts. The excellent boardercross, which you can access from the top of the Col de la Chal, provides hours of entertainment, even if you are a freestyle novice. Why not challenge a friend to a one-on-one race down the mountain?

Mille8 in Arc 1800 has its very own boardercross too, Les Bosses. Use your lift pass to register at the top of the course and cameras will film your descent so you can share your amazing freestyle skills online. At night the atmosphere is extra special as multi-coloured LED lights provide illumination to the course.

Near the base of the Arpette’s chairlift are a couple of freestyle facilities including the Apocalypse snow park. This freestyle park is served by its own ski lift and offers a range of jumps and rails suitable for a mix of abilities.

The nearby Big Air Bag, is perfect for those that want to try their hand at big-style jumps and tricks with a guaranteed soft landing. And during the spring months the neighbouring waterslide provides hours of entertainment as ambitious skiers and boarders attempt to ski across a short pond. Prepare for a big splash.

Things To Do

Restaurants, food and drink

Les Arcs is an excellent ski resort for eating out with a wide choice of restaurants both on and off the mountain. Up in Arc 2000, the rustic Chalet de L’Arc is a must stop for lunch. The prices can be expensive but the traditional atmosphere is highly recommended – especially the strong smell of reblochon and other French cheeses.

The French flavours continue off the mountain. In the centre of Arc 1950 the popular Le Mazot restaurant specialises in traditional Savoyard cuisine, such as fondue and tartiflette. Tables book-up quickly and we suggest booking in advance for your evening meal.

Just around the corner from Le Mazot, Le Vache Rouge is also highly recommended. This quirky restaurant greets outside visitors with a large red cow and the cow theme continues inside, both with the funky interior and on the menu. Beef steaks and burgers abound, but again it is the fondue (with meat platter) that makes us want to go back.

Tucked away in a quiet corner of Arc 2000, the delightful Au Refuge Gourmand is as cozy as it is charming. A very small restaurant – what it lacks in size it makes up for in friendly service and delicious food and drink.

Finally, if you’re looking for a quick snack in Arc 2000, it’s hard to find many better restaurants than the Bois de L’Ours, which specialises in delicious sandwiches, burgers and cakes. 

Lower down the mountain, in Arc 1800, there are plenty of restaurants to welcome skiers. La Fruitiere, which is part of the La Folie Douce, serves delicious local and authentic food in an incredible setting. If you are looking for a quick lunch spot L'Altiport Restaurant near the bottom of the Les Arcs Snow Park serves quick bites such as burgers and hotdogs. 

Après, bars, clubs and nightlife

There are plenty of bars dotted around Les Arcs. The main après scene is in Arc 1800, head to Folie Douce  for authentic French apres or the Bar King Mad (known as BKM) at the end of the ski day.  Later in the evening partygoers head from BKM to Red Hot Saloon. Just a few doors down in the Arc 1800 village, this bar has a large terrace, which is an excellent place for chilling out on a bluebird day. Live music inspires crazy dancing until late into the evening.

At the top of resort, Arc 2000 has a great variety of après destinations. One of our favourites is the Bowling Arc 2000 – a fabulous mixture of bowling lanes, pool tables, arcade machines and, of course, a cocktail bar. The expert mixologists will even deliver your drinks to your bowling game. Chill out at the Village Igloo bar, a bar carved out of ice with an adjoining ice grotto. It is definitely worth going just for the photo opportunities. Clubbers are also welcomed in Arc 2000. Latino Loco is the go to destination for late night dance music and DJ sets.

Arc 1950 has a much quieter après scene, but we’ve had loads of fun at Les Belles Pintes Irish pub, dancing to cheesy eighties pop music until late into the evening. The piste side terrace of Chalet de Luigi Bar is frequently heaving at the end of the ski day.

Shopping

Shoppers should head to Arc 1950. There is a variety of sports equipment shops – from upmarket boutiques to specialised children’s sports retailers like Les Petits Troubadours.

Amongst the many equipment shops there are also a several places to buy gifts. Cascade Sucre, as the name implies, sells anything sweet, and has an excellent range of chocolates. There is even a little stall where you can buy ice cream.

You can also buy traditional Savoyard products, from ornaments to fine cheeses and liquors, at regional produce shops in both Arc 1950 and 2000. They make an excellent gift for friends and family who sadly couldn’t join you on your holiday.

Supermarkets are easily found across the resort, with one of the largest located in Arc 1950.

Spas and relaxation

Les Arcs has a fabulous range of spas and leisure facilities. The Cinq Mondes spa in Arc 1950 is a luxurious swimming pool complex and wellness centre. The indoor swimming pool is particularly impressive with grand chandeliers and rock features.

In Arc 1800 both the Hotel Eden and the Hotel du Golf have their own spa and relaxation facilities. And the state of the art Mille 8 complex has a stunning aquatic centre, just off the slopes and overlooking Mont Blanc. The exciting slides and water features are perfect for children.

Visitors to Arc 2000 have a fine choice of spas too. The Paradiski’s first ever 5 star hotel, the luxury Taj-I Mah has a large spa area and indoor pool complex. Guests have access to saunas, steam baths, sensory showers and a solarium. Massages and beauty treatments are also available to buy locally. It’s the perfect place to unwind after a long day spent skiing.

Arts, culture and events

The winter season begins in Les Arcs with the yearly Les Arcs European Film Festival. Ten feature films go head-to-head to try to win the coveted Crystal Arrow – awarded by a prestigious jury of filmmakers.

Festive celebrations run throughout mid-December into the New Year, including a torch lit descent, fireworks and dancing at the Place Olympique on New Years Eve. 

Freeride Week takes place in Arc 1950 towards the end of January and offers a week of competitions to freeriding skiers and snowboarders from across the globe. The event includes the Freeride World Qualifier and the Freeride Junior Tour as well as talks on skiing safely off-piste.

Finally, Les Arcs turns into a home-away-from-home on the last week of March when The Great British Celebration arrives in resort. The whole resort is decked in Union Jack bunting and a series of events are hosted to celebrate all things British.

Set at the top of the Varet gondola in Arc 2000 you can find the Fresques Lumineuses de l’Aiguille Rouge, a unique passageway in the gondola garage,  with a range of illuminated murals. The theme this year is 'Seasonal Lights' so you can admire a range of different displays - it is included with your ski pass, and is open daily throughout the winter. 

Things to do in Les Arcs

Paradiski is renowned amongst Alpine resorts for its outstanding skiing and it certainly deserves its reputation as a skier’s paradise! However, while you could ski from the crack of dawn until the last lift every day of your ski holiday, and will never tire of the incredible slopes here, Les Arcs has so much more to offer both on and off the piste.

Museum of Mountain Animals

This free museum showcases mountain flora and fauna, learn about the mountains eco-system and appreciate the nature surrounding the resort. It can be found at the top of the Vallandry cable car. 

First Tracks

Join the pisteurs to be the first skiers on the mountain where they will point out the main peaks and accompany you as you enjoy the freshly-pisted slopes before sharing breakfast as the sun comes up. Mandatory registration is required before 15:00 on Tuesday (Subject to change. Check with our representatives whilst you are away for the most up to date information)

Tobogganing

Fun and thrills are guaranteed with the toboggan run in 1800. Open each day and for a small local fee you can fly down the dedicated toboggan run. 

Igloo Village and Ice Grotto

The Les Arcs Ice Grotto allows you can admire the incredible ice sculpture exhibition which features all sorts of stunning, hand-carved figures. 

The Rodeo Park Luge

Enjoy whizzing down the 3km descent with twists and turns on sledge. Every Wednesday afternoon this adrenaline-packed, three-kilometre toboggan ride from the top of the Arcabulle lift in Arc 2000 stays open after the pistes close so you can sledge after sundown. The nocturnal descent is bookable by reservation only.

Minimum ages and heights apply. Your Inghams representative can help you to book this activity locally.

Parapenting

Like hang-gliding, but with skis on. Strap a parachute on and join a guide in an adrenaline-filled jump off the edge of the mountain, where you will soar through the skies above the pistes before coming to a gentle landing above either Arc 1600 or 1800. Speak to your local representative for advice on how to book this adrenaline rush of an experience.

Night skiing in Arc 2000

Have you ever wanted to extend your ski day into the night? Have a go at night skiing on the Cabanes piste (Arc 1800) each day until around 19:30 and until approximately 20:30 on Thursdays (subject to change). 

Dinner in a yurt  

Join local expert Yourtine for a Savoyard evening by the fire in an authentic Mongolian yurt.  After snowshoeing from Arc 1950 or riding there by snake gliss, you’ll walk to the yurts along a torch-lit pathway. A traditional Savoyard meal of seasonal vegetable soup, tartiflette and other Alpine specialities is served by the wooden stove.

Speak to your Inghams representative for assistance booking this trip.

Ice climbing in Champagny-en-Vanoise

In the Champagny-en-Vanoise valley, natural waterfalls freeze over because of the intense cold, making it a favourite playground for climbers. Here you will find the famous Ice Tower, a completely unique man-made ice structure! 

At twenty-four metres high, it has multiple routes to the top with different angles and reliefs, meaning climbers of all levels can enjoy an amazing ascent. The experienced instructors will provide your equipment and give complete beginners an introduction to the world of ice climbing.

Géants de Malgovert

Take the children to explore the giant 7 metre tall wooden statues in the Malgovert forest, with a range of climbing walls, platforms and rope nests, it is an excellent way to experience the beauty of nature from above. Designed to raise awareness to the woodland setting, you can find the Malgovert giants just down from the Mont Blanc chairlift.

Travel Information

All our holidays include return travel to resort either by flight or train and then the transfer between the airport or railway station and Les Arcs.

Departures are on Saturdays with stays for 7 or 14 nights except our 8 night Eurostar Snow Train package which departs Saturday and returns a week late on the Sunday.

The transfer in Les Arcs will stop as chose as possible to your chosen accommodation. In some cases there may be a 5 minutes' walk due to the location of the property not being accessible by coach, particularly in Arc 2000 where access to some accommodation is through the underground car park.

Private transfers and self drive options are available, call to book these.

Travel By Air

Flights to Chambery or Geneva from 13 UK airports

Transfer Times

  • Chambery airport: approx. 2 hours 30 mins by coach
  • Geneva airport: approx. 3 hours 30 mins by coach

There is a traffic light system for the Tarentaise Valley. This system controls and slows down the traffic, stopping traffic sitting in dangerous places, like tunnels, where rocks can fall and to make snow clearing easier when it is snowing. This can impact your transfer time, meaning you may arrive into resort later and be leaving for the airport earlier. 

Transfers may be longer during bad weather conditions or French school holidays. French school holidays span 21 Dec 24 - 06 Jan 25, 08 Feb - 10 Mar 25 and 05 Apr - 05 May 25.

Travel by Train (7 nights)

We also have a 7 night train option to Les Arcs.
