Owner description: Les Arcs ski resort is an atypical resort that faces Mont Blanc and overlooks the Upper Tarentaise Valley. This openness provides a 360° panorama. Its South-Easterly orientation is synonymous with sunshine and breathtaking sunsets over the surrounding summits. An area where renowned athletes can perform, this playground with its unequalled variety can guarantee you some wonderful memories! Its 4 high altitude, car-free and "ski-to-the-door" villages (Arc 2000, Arc 1950, Arc 1800 & Arc 1600)all enjoy their own style, which you can discover at will... An integral part of Paradiski, the 2nd largest inter-linked ski area in the world, more than 70% of Les Arcs' pistes are above 2000m, a variety of situations that can provide "all-weather" skiing for abilities on "pistes Natur'" and forest slopes...and fun zones! Let us know what you think about the resort to even further enhance the quality of your welcome, your information and your guidance inside the resort.

Food is extremely expensive but for two surprising finds amongst which Bar King Mad (1800) and new a grill place on the piste..forgot the name...Even the supermarket is overly expensive. Pistes are good, lifts are ok to good.

Comprising stations at four levels, this is a resort with a "buzz" The four stations are completely different in character. Excellent skiing to be had all round, and with the connection of the Vanoise Express to La Plagne (now in its tenth year), there is a vast area to cover. Great plans are afoot for the near future to improve the lift system even more, and replace a small skating rink with a gym and health/spa centre. Several ski schools available and good facilities for children (creche/junior ski school etc) Good connections by snow and road to all four resorts, and the pistes are now well served with on piste restaurants. I have owned a property here for 23 years and have seen the resort improve every year. Well worth a visit.

I have visited a few places to sky but this one is one of the best. Lovely ambience and the wheater helped a lot. I would definitely go back next year and hope to have the same lovey experience.

I have been to more than 50 ski resorts in my life and many several times. Les Arcs/Paradiski is one of the worlds best - no dispute about that. There is skiing for all tastes and you can even go up the mountain together, then each choose off-piste, black, red or blue and then meet up easily without getting lost. I am personally not so fond of the "ski station" concept of Arc 1800 and 2000 so since 1950 was build I head there now everytime. My wife is delighted with the new great Spa as well.

Works extremely well with Snow Train from St Pancreas
Snow sure

Cons
Slightly Ugly
Quiet apres (espcially in 2000/1950)
Crowded in very peak weeks
