Hannah, Our friendly Ski Chalet Specialist in Les Arcs

Ski Range 1,220m – 3,250m

Les Arcs, high above the Tarentaise valley, is the descriptive name for three superb ski resorts. Three are at the ascending heights of 1600m, 1800m and 2000m. Our eight ski chalets are all situated in Les Arcs 2000 – the best and the highest of the three ski resorts – at the foot of the Aiguille Rouge, in a secluded snow-sure bowl. Each chalet apartment, in the Residence de L'Ours building, has its very own host and all guests have free access to the pool in the neighbouring Altitude residence.
Les Arcs 2000 offers sensational skiing, with the guaranteed snow of the Varet and Bellecôte glaciers plus unparalleled views of Mont Blanc and its surrounding peaks, and the cable-car link with La Plagne means there are 425kms of wonderful pistes on the 'Paradiski' lift pass, making this the 'hottest' ticket in French skiing and the perfect place for your skiing holiday!


Les Arcs Ski School


Les Arcs is an excellent place to learn to ski, with snow-sure beginners' areas within easy reach of all our chalets, and that great 'top-of-the-world' feeling that comes from being up in the mountains from day one, rather than learning down in the valley. There are also ski and snowboard courses available for all ability levels from early intermediate to advanced, and guides available for off-piste touring. Families will also find this a convenient resort, and the ski-school makes children of all ages very welcome.

NIGHTLIFE & APRES SKI

Although not a wild resort for après ski, Les Arcs 2000 does offer plenty of lively, friendly bars and cafés for the obligatory vin chaud at the end of skiing. There are also several clubs and some hotels and bars have occasional live music.

The après ski activities available in Les Arcs range from snowmobiling and ice-skating to more relaxing pursuits such as a swim in the indoor pool of the Altitude Residence, immediately adjacent to the de l'Ours Residence where all our chalets are located and available free of charge to all Ski Total guests.

SKIING IN Les Arcs

Ski Range 1,220m – 3,250m

The ski area of Les Arcs and its connected villages of Vallandry and Peisey-Nancroix include some of the smoothest and longest runs in the French Alps, as well as some of the most exciting. Whatever your ski ability, whether you are chasing a speed record, enjoy motorway cruising and pretty tree-lined runs or want to learn on gentle, sunny nursery slopes, Les Arcs has something to offer everyone.

This is a fantastic ski holiday area for intermediates, especially mixed ability groups, as many of the lifts offer alternative routes, so easier or more challenging runs can be selected. Skiing in the trees down to Peisey Nancroix is delightful and it is worth exploring this under-used area for its well groomed, quieter ski slopes.

There is much to test the expert skier in Les Arcs. The steepest and deepest powder is generally below the Aiguille Rouge and in the renowned couloirs of its East Face (go with a guide!) The 7km run to Villaroger involves a spectacular vertical drop of 2000m, and challenging moguls develop on the Comborcières run.

Les Arcs is also a snowboarder’s paradise, with a superb fun-park and half-pipe complementing Les Arcs resort’s natural terrain.

The Vanoise Express cable-car connects Les Arcs with the further 220kms of wonderful skiing at neighbouring La Plagne – yet another exciting dimension to this simply superb ski area.
